Nagpur: RJD Supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav lambasted RSS Chief Dr Mohan Bhagawat over latter’s critical views on reservation policy. He tweeted that the RSS and the BJP might try to any extent their evil design to do away with reservation policy, 80% Dalits and the backward would deal a befitting blow to them. He passed a challenge to them in his vernacular, as, agar koi ma ka doodh piya hai, to arakshan khatam karke dikhaye (If any one has consumed his mother’s milk, let him try to abolish reservation).
He has further tweeted, how much strength one has will become known soon. Lalu reacted over Mohan Bhagwat’s those remarks which the letter had made, as, “A committee be constituted to decide the policy on reservation as to who should get reservation and for how much period. The base of reservation must be social backwardness.”
Supporting Lalu’s views, Mukul tweeted, “The 5000 years long slavery/ servitude cannot be wiped out by reservation of 50-60 years. It will be considered after 200 or 250 years, or just produce the figures of census and discuss on them as to how much change has come owing to reservation and how much it is still needed. No body is doing this. All upper caste people have committed atrocities on Dalits and backwards for all these years, and now they (upper caste) are opposing their (Dalits’ and backwards’) fundamental rights of reservation and also their means for liberation. Or, go for reservation for all castes, on the basis of their number/ population, and who so ever has more number will have more reservation facility.”
Attacking Lalu, one Rajesh tweeted, as, “If Lalu is a dam, let him make his son contest the election in Makhdumpur seat which is under influence of Manjhi, and is a Mahadalit segment. Reservation is required for a Charachor, not for Manjhi who is a popular leader of Dalits and backward.”
