Congress Slams Nitin Gadkari's Remarks on Reservation and Jobs

“Where are the Jobs” says Nitin gadkari when asked on reservations – See How Rahul Gandhi and Congress Reacted

Nitin Gadkari is a leader who always speaks his heart. According to ndtv.com  Nitin Gadkari made the remarks responding to reporters' questions on the ongoing agitation by the Marathas for reservation and similar demands by other communities in Maharashtra.
"Let's us assume the reservation is given. But there are no jobs. Because in banks, the jobs have shrunk because of IT. The government recruitment is frozen. Where are the jobs?" he asked.

"The problem with the quota is that backwardness is becoming a political interest. Everyone says I am backward. In Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, Brahmins are strong. They dominate politics. (And) They say they are backward," the senior BJP leader said.
"So one school of thought is that a poor person is a poor person, he has no caste, creed or language. Whatever may be the religion -- the Muslim, the Hindu or the Maratha (a caste), in all communities there is one section which has no clothes to wear, no food to eat.
"One school of thought also is (that) we must also consider the poorest of the poor section in every community," he said.

The people of India have been demanding the reservation based on economic status so that people from all the castes, communities, religions get the benefit of reservation. There have been instances wherein generation after generation people are getting the benefit of reservation, however the economically weaker sections of the society have not got the benefit and are still struggling.

In every cast and community you will find poor and backwards but not all are fortunate to get the reservation benefit in India. Hence Nitin Gadkari rightly pointed out that now every cast in India is trying to prove them backward and demanding reservation in jobs. In the recent past we have seen many such demands from various casts. 

We saw Jats in Haryana, Gurjars in Rajasthan, Patedaars in Gujarat and now Marathas in Maharastra.

The problem is that as per the SC ruling there is a percent limit for reservation and governments just can’t promise reservation to all who are demanding it.
Second problem is opposition from the existing OBC castes in sharing their quota of reservation with other castes.
