Calling it a historic decision, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday hailed the Union Cabinet’s move approving 10 per cent reservation in jobs and educational institutions for the economically backward section in the general category.
“It’s a historic step by Modi govt. It’s meant for economically weaker upper caste sections whose annual earning is lower than Rs. 8 lakhs and who possess less than 5 acres of land. It will not affect other reservation categories,” Vijay Sampla, MoS for Social Justice and Empowerment said.
