SC/ST from all over India demanding for Reservation in Private Sector.

Start here


On 26th Nov we celebrate as Constitution Day. On this date, SC/ST from all over India are demanding for Reservation in Private Sector.
We appeal people to support it for two reasons – to strengthen the political democracy and restrain the economic rights of SC/ST.
Let me give you justification to this demand and appeal.
You are well aware of the fact of moving India and growing India from hands to hands of Kings, Emperors and Political parties. They have been coming and going since immemorial time, but the status of indigenous population scheduled under Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, referred hereinafter as SC/ST, becoming worst. The intelligentsia of reformers failing repeatedly to protect and preserve the interest of SC/ST. Intelligent people of the day have created a contradiction – all government documents, political parties and international agencies like World Banks, etc. are sincere for the wellbeing of SC/ST in their official declaration. But ground reality is contradicting their sincerity – poverty, inflation, unemployment, atrocities, abhorrence, negligence and deprivation is increasing. The facts and stories are known to you and I need not to explain.
I wish to draw your attention to the representation of SC/ST during the power transfer from British to India. Dr. Ambedker was representing the interest of SC/ST/ OBC/Minority.  While drafting constitution of India, he struggle very hard to ensure the representation of SC/ST in the democratic set up. He could succeed to some extent and results are seen in terms of reservation in legislature and government jobs. He also made a remark while giving constitution to Union of India. Let me reproduce some of the texts as follows:
“……….. we are going to enter into a life of contradictions. In politics we will have equality and in social and economic life we will have inequality. In politics we will be recognising the principle of one man one vote and one value. In our social and economic life, we shall, by reason of our social and economic structure, continue to deny the principle of one man one value. How long should we continue to live this life of contradiction? How long shall we continue to deny equality in our social and economic life? If we continue to deny it for long, we will do so only by putting our political democracy in peril. We must remove this contradiction at the earliest possible moment or else those who suffer from inequality will blow the structure of political democracy which this Assembly has so laboriously built up.”
It is public who will decide that whether our political democracy is in peril or not. But one thing is clear – ruling political parties of India are transferring the State economic power / resources in the hands of Private Sectors agencies of Indian and foreign origin. It seems that ruling political parties are hurry in forcing and enforcing laws in land acquisition for Private Sector, Sale of PSUs, Privatizing Governmental Services, Leasing rivers to Private Agencies, etc. By and by all resources of the States will get transferred to the Private Sector of National and Foreign origin.
At this juncture SC/ST have two option – either to protest privatization or to seek population proportionate share / representation  in the resource distribution and in Private Sector. SC/ST have been demanding to stop privatization and not to transfer the economic power in the hands of private sector. They failed. Now they have only one choice – Demand for representation in resource distribution in Private Sector which includes Employment, Entrepreneurship, Education, Corporate Governance and Foreign Contracts. Therefore, it is time for the SC/ST community to demand for population proportionate representation in the resource distribution and in private sector.
Let us salute the people who are demanding for reservation in Private Sector.
With Regards

    I think we should have 100% reservation in forSC\ST in the medical profession … Merit or capability of any other group should not have my say in this … This will have long ranging benefits to nation. Instead of seeking access and assurance in the capability building tools, this gentleman wants reservation in results. Very soon he will as for reservation in every aspect … Food, women, land, water, air, and everything else … Thus will summarily destroy the fabric of the nation and its population. The nation is already splintered and govt money is squandered in schemes that do not reach its intended population. Now seeking a reservation on private spend … How laughable is that!! By that logic, the women in general are most oppressed for generations … They should have 50% reservation in everything … But no, that is not digestible for the people!!,
