BJP blames UPA for stay on quota law
March 29, 2007 12:47 IST
The Bharatiya Janata Party on Thursday flayed the Centre for its handling of the OBC reservation case in the Supreme Court and demanded that the government take a 'comprehensive' view on the policy aimed at uplift of disadvantaged section.
"The Apex court decision is the result of the UPA government's abject failure to project its case of social backwardness in the right perspective," party spokesman Prakash Jawadekar said.
He insisted that his party was in support of reservation for OBCs and SCs and STs and said a comprehensive view aimed at their uplift would resolve the issue once and for all.
"The government must, therefore, take a comprehensive view of the reservation policy and accord further reservation to poorer section of such caste and communities that are not covered under the 50 percent quota", Jawadekar said.
