Anti-quota Stir is a Creation of the Media: Ramadoss

Nationwide protests witnessed last month against the government's plan to increase caste-based quotas in institutions of higher education were a creation of the media, Union Health Minister Anbumani Ramadoss said here Friday

'The resistance (to the proposal) came from the media,' he told reporters.

Justifying the proposal for the 27 percent reservation for the other backward classes (OBCs) in central educational institutions, he said all political parties had supported the government proposal.

'This is in accordance with the constitution,' he added.

The government was going to increase the number of seats in central institutions to offset the reservation plan's impact on upper caste students. 'The seats will be increased in a phased manner,' Ramadoss said.
