The Samajwadi Party has used a dalit MP as the assassin to kill the Bill that seeks 117th Amendment of Constitution of India for providing reservation in promotion. This shows the mindset & philosophy of the Party towards the SCs and STs in perspective.
Yashvir Singh, the MP representing Nagina SC Constituency is not an illiterate. Holder of a B. Tech. degree, the MP knows too well the meaning and significance of reservation in promotion for SC/ST communities. And such a person has been used as a hack to undo what the Parliament was to do the 19 Dec. 2012 by amending the Constitution.
This underlines yet another important aspect of the dalit and tribal leaderes elected from reserved constituencies to Assemblies and Parliament. They cannot dare or afford to oppose knowing full well what is/was patently against the community interest. If they deviate from the party's anti-SC/ST policies, they face the prospect of being denied ticket in next election, besides charges of disobeying Party whip.
In fact, no SC or ST leader, MLA or MP can ever afford to ignore opposition of the general caste voters. They usually do not like any benefit reaching the SC/ST communities from the government. Look at what happens when a tubewell for driking water supply is installed. It has never been instaled in areas with sizeable SC or ST population. Never a school or college has been established in the areas dominated by SC or ST. Never a road is allowed to be built in the SC/ST dominated areas. A water channel for irrigation is neither allowed to benefit lands of the disadvantaged communities. No SC/ST MLA or MP can stand against such move by upper castes. They are majority as voters who win the day. SC/ST rarely benefit from their representatives as a result.
So the great mischief done by Joint Electorate System under the Poona Pact needs to be undone else the emancipation of SC or ST communities will remain a far cry---ever a dream. Their MLAs and MPs are slaves and captive in the cage of their respective political party. So there has to be demand for abolition of the Joint electorate System at first. This is a major electoral reform to be undertaken by the country first.
This is why when dalit or tribal girls or women are raped, murdered or massacres take place against them, no SC or ST MLA or MP has ever raised any voice againt the crime? This due to joint eletorate system. Upper caste Hindu voters in every constituency is larger than the SC or ST voters as the case may be.
Separate elctorate system has to be in place to raise the quality of elected SC/ST leaders.
a scuffle broke out when Congress chief Sonia Gandhi tried to retrieve the Bill. >>. All the newspapers vied with have been giving dramatic and beautific spin on Sonia Gandhi's action in Parliament today.
Telegraph takes the cake as usual in its Sonia Gandhi bhajan :
Sonia Gandhi once captured with poignancy the tragedy that stalked the Nehru-Gandhi family when she wrote how she tried to stop Rajiv Gandhi from accepting prime ministership: “I fought like a tigress — for him, for us and our children, above all, for our freedom.”
This afternoon, that unfamiliar face was on display in the Lok Sabha when she fought for a bill that has pitted one UPA prop against another.
WHY didn't the channels just SHOW the footage of Sonia Gandhi so that we can see what really happened and draw our conclusion on whether Sonia fought like a tiger, pulled the SP member's hand, spoke a sentence in Parliament, injured her hand etc etc.
All this is drama, well rehearsed earlier in front of that kicking former FM,who is now the prez
Is this man aminister in the PMO or is he a PM himself!,since every answer which should be given in the paliament by the present dumb PM is given by this ugly man
For once, the country must be thankful to SP.
The entire top echelons of bureaucracy has already been densely filled by idiots who would not have been even employable, if not for reservations. It will be better to carve out a separate country for the Mandalites than to screw the entire nation to the pander of their whims.
