Ineffective reservation

Sir, — Karnataka High Court judge Justice S.N. Satyanarayana said in Kalaburagi recently that reservations were still continuing even 70 years after Independence, and it was because they have not yielded the right results within the expected time.

That is true. But what is

the reason? It is mainly because of the fact that the benefits of reservation are being cornered by the influential people and the rich Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe communities. The backward and poor members of SC and ST communities are

being denied their constitutional rights.

It is high time the influential and the rich forego reservation to make way for the poor and backward SC and ST community members. The law can be amended to exclude the elite from the ambit of reservation.
