Why do people earning over Rs 10 lakhs need reservation?
We have just seen two unnecessary subsidies removed. The LPG subsidy was removed for people earning more than Rs.10 lakhs per annum. The Parliament Canteen food subsidy was removed for MPs.
Reservation was provided in our constitution to enable under-privileged sections of Indian society. It was provisioned for 10 years post-Independence, with an option to extend for another 5 years. Political parties have ensured that 50% Reservation is still provided well into the 69th year of Indian independence.
While it is necessary to support parts of our society that need such provisions, Reservation should not be abused. When Reservation is indiscriminately provided based on caste irrespective of economic background or competence, it has the potential to bury merit, breed mediocrity and spread discontentment.
It is fair to provide free/subsidised education to children of economically disadvantaged families. However, post-education, it is just not fair to continue to provide job-based Reservations to those families earning beyond Rs10 lakhs a year. Sign my petition to stop this trend.
If Reservation is provided only to those who actually need help, we can encourage more merit-based recruitment, make it a better market for recruiters and job-seekers to achieve better progress and overall development for the country.
I am sure that all Indians who have the Country’s interest on their mind will voluntarily give away Reservation benefits. Let us all aspire to just be “CITIZENS OF INDIA” and shed all other labels and terms.
Sign and share this petition so that we can build support for this proposal of Fair Reservation.
