Quota bill to play master stroke for BJP in 2019? | Samvidhan Ki Shapath

Updated 08 Jan 2019 07:54 PM

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Tuesday rejected criticism that the 10 per cent reservation for the poor among the upper castes in jobs and education will breach the 50 per cent cap set by the Supreme Court, saying that the limit was specific to quota for the SCs/STs and socially and educationally backward classes.

Intervening in the debate on the Constitution Amendment Bill for upper caste quota in the Lok Sabha, he also dismissed criticism that the proposed quota would violate the basic structure of the Constitution and referred to inclusion of the word "secular" in the Constitution during the emergency.
