Owaisi asks government to spell out its stand on RSS chief’s statement

Hyderabad, Sep 21 (IANS) Asserting that reservations to other backward classes (OBCs) can’t be discontinued at all, MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday asked the Narendra Modi government to make its stand clear on the statement by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat.

He said the true face of the government was slowly coming out as it wants Hindu consolidation to ensure that OBC reservation and other reservation comes down.

“We would like to know what is Modi government’s policy on the statement given by the RSS chief who is ideological guru of all swayamsevaks including the prime minister,” the Hyderabad MP said while reacting to Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief’s statement.

Owaisi said calling for a review of reservation policy was convenient way of saying that reservation should be discontinued to OBCs. “This can’t be done at all,” he said.

The Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) leader challenged the Modi government to release caste census. “The whole world will come to know what is the actual reality and then OBCs will decide.”

He also wanted to know why the government was opposing promotions to Dalits in government employment.

Bhagwat has called for a review of the reservation policy in the country, contending it has been used for political ends. He suggested that an apolitical committee be set up to examine who needs the facility and for how long.
