BJP Scheduled Caste cell State president Lal Singh Arya said that the
Congress was demeaning Babasaheb Ambedkar by dishonouring the Indian
The Indian Constitution, by providing reservation to the Scheduled
Castes and Tribes that had been facing injustice for decades, provided
natural justice to these sections of the society.
However, the Constitution has never agreed to provide reservation in
the name of religion, cult or community.
Arya further said that when a demand of reservation was raised on the
basis of religion and cult, during the British Rule in 1935, the
representatives of all the ideologies had turned down the demand.
When the Congress talks of reservation to Muslims terming them as
backward, it does not mean development of backwards. It simply wants
to extort the Muslims sentimentally for votes, he alleged. This is
why; the Congress raises the reservation issue just before the
Arya further alleged that if minority votes come in favour of
Congress, the deal would be crystal clear.
A difference between minorities is never said to be inequality. Arya
also said that after independence in 1947, a meeting of the framing
committee of the Constitution was held where the representatives of
all the ideologies were present and they denied the reservations on
the basis of religion.
On the recommendation of Sachar Committee and Rangnath Misra
Commission the unconstitutional facts cannot be termed as
constitutional. But now the question arises that when the Congress
ruled for 58 years then how it can free itself from taking an
accountability of the prevailed backwardness in society," Arya asked.
