In a historic move just ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, the Narendra Modi-led NDA government has decided to give ten per cent reservation in jobs and higher education for those belonging to the poor.
The reservation which was approved by the Union cabinet today will not disturb the existing 50 per cent reservation. Reportedly, the Union government will amend Articles 15 and 16, which has provisions against discrimination and equal opportunity to implement the new reform.
The new ‘surgical strike’ conducted by the Narendra Modi government to provide reservations for existing unreserved people has been receiving a resounding welcome. The historic decision by the Narendra Modi government seems to have hurt some members of the Congress supported Lutyens ecosystem, as they have already begun propagating false narrative pertaining to the new reform.
The Lutyens cabal that often expresses fake empathy towards the poor and downtrodden when it chooses their convenience has now been citing caste dynamics and poll arithmetic as the reason behind this historic decision. ‘Journalists’ of the Congress ecosystem who often indulge in fake narrative propagation are now perplexed after Prime Minister Modi surprised them with a positive narrative.
Barkha Dutt, one of the oldest serving member of the Lutyens cabal rushed to pass her judgements regarding the new reservation policy. She first called it an ‘upper caste’ reservation and called it unconstitutional despite the fact that the new policy is yet to face judicial scrutiny.
In other words BJP wants ‘upper’ caste reservation (fear of backlash to restoring original SC /St act). But two points – going above 50 % quotas is unconstitutional & will be struck down by court. Two, where are the govt jobs? https://t.co/Xj98HJI8pD

Radia Tape famed self-proclaimed journalist and one of the founding editors of The Wire, MK Venu looked worried as the new move by the BJP may benefit the party electorally in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.
10 % reservation quota for upper caste announced by govt is aimed at consolidating upper caste in UP and Bihar in Lok sabha polls. But people by now realize issue is too complicated with 50% ceiling on quota as per past SC directive.

Sidharth Varadarajan, the ultra-left scribe, who is not even an Indian citizen called the reform which benefits crores of poor, underprivileged as a ‘bogus proposal’ and accused the government of being desperate.
Bogus proposal from govt desperate to be seen as doing something for millions of youth looking for work. First, there are no jobs. Second, Modi would rather the unemployed fight among themselves for crumbs rather than target him for failing to deliver. https://t.co/usMAKUe5DE

Sagarika Ghose, a journalist sympathetic to Congress expressed her anguish after PM Modi promised to empower upper class through new reservation policy. She questioned the rationale of providing quotas to the needy unreserved population.
When there is a dearth of jobs and opportunities, what’s the rationale of endless quotas? Where’s wealth creation? Expansion of economy?

Swati Chaturvedi, a troll masquerading as a journalist claimed that it was another ‘jumla’ and implementation of such reform is difficult.

Rohini Singh, known for her fondness to Samajwadi Party and also associated with fake news website The Wire said that the government lacked any intent to provide reservation to economically weaker sections.
If the government had serious intent of giving reservation to upper caste, it would have tried to push this on the first day of parliament. Not when the session is ending.

The move for 10% reservations is likely to woo back people from the Upper Castes who had deserted the party. Their support will be absolutely essential to secure a victory in the elections this year.
