About: Fixing Quotas.

"We, the people of India, having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a soverign socialist secular democratic republic and to secure to all its citizens:
JUSTICE, social, economic and political;
LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship;
EQUALITY of status and of opportunity;
and to promote among them all
FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation;
in our Constituent assembly this twenty-sixth day of November 1949, do hereby adopt, enact and give ourselves this Constitution
."

The above lines constitute the Preamble of the Constitution of Republic of India.
Do you think fixing quota for anyone is in line with what the Preamble says?

Mere election gimmicks. Absolute hypocricy with respect to "equality of status" Totally undermines the merit system and the deserving lose out.

@ Lavanya:Even if it a gimmick I consider it as a serious one.I wont bet if it may be forced upon or not but the results will be regretful and disasterous

Reservation is one of the very big factors which keeps real merit holders back... be it reservation for some caste or sex

Hmm.. reservation was put into the consitution as a temporary measure and shud ultimately be done away with. But our politicions dont want to lose their vote bank by doing this.. how much will they sacrifice for those votes..

Increasing reservation is only going to increase the divide..
