OBCs Should Get 54% Quota: Samajwadi Partys Ram Gopal Yadav

New Delhi:  With the passage of the quota bill in the parliament, the BJP has in truth opened a Pandora’s Box.

Obviously enough, Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav on Wednesday clamoured for 54 per cent quota for OtherBackward Classes(OBCs).

He said that the government had opened doors for it by breaching the Supreme Court’s 50 per cent barrier on reservations.

Meanwhile, he supported the constitution amendment bill allowing 10 per cent quota for those in the general category.

However, he said the OBCs were given reservation corresponding to only half their population thus ensuring that 50 per cent cap is not breached.

"But when you have broken the barrier of 50 per cent as set by the Supreme Court, I request that OBCs should be given 54 per cent reservation as per their population as opposed to 27 per cent now. Also, the population of Scheduled Castes is also now 25 per cent and they should be given reservation accordingly," he is quoted as saying in the Rajya Sabha.
