No reservations in Govt. jobs on caste basis.
Satbir Singh Bedi | 12 Apr 2013

I do not support reservations for backward classes in Govt. jobs because it would do/is doing incalculable harm to the country by denying the meritorious people of their right and allowing dull and people with low merit to run the affairs of the State and man other services like medical profession where low intelligence of a doctor can put the lives of the patients to serious risk. It seems that we are not really interested in running the administration in a serious manner except for the defence services where there is no reservation because we know that reservations in defence services could land the country in another period of slavery. Having said that, I feel that we have to provide scholarships and fee subsidy to backward classes to allow them to have a level playing field because a vast majority of them are too poor to pay for their studies.
