On the proposed quota for the upper caste, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati welcomed the move but added
that it is a political stunt coming ahead of national election.
It need be mentioned that Union Cabinet had only yesterday decided to provide 10 per cent reservation in education and government jobs to the
economically weaker sections.
The BJP, however, has termed the government decision “historic”.
Mayawati said her party has demanded reservation for economically weak Muslims and other minority communities but the BJP did not do “justice” to
them and that is condemnable.
