Patna, Sep 21 (IANS) RJD chief Lalu Prasad on Monday dared RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and the BJP to end education and job quotas.
“I challenge the RSS and the BJP to end reservations,” the former Bihar chief minister said on Twitter in response to the RSS chief’s suggestion to review the policy of reservation.
Lalu Prasad said 80 percent of the country’s population was made up of Dalits and backwards who would oppose any attempt to do away with reservations.
“The RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) is talking about ending reservations and we are talking about increasing it on the basis of the population,” he said.
The RSS chief on Sunday pitched for a review of the reservation policy, contending it had been used for political ends and suggesting setting up an apolitical committee to examine who needs the facility and till when.
