In an oblique reference to the recent Jat agitation in Haryana and the Patel stir in Gujarat the RSS demands for the reservation by the affluent sections of society only reflected deviating from the spirit of constitution. It is a matter of shame that the country is diversified in its stand and trying to become more communal and that is not a good sign for the unity of our nation. Thus, the RSS wants to relook at its creamy layers and trying to bring out something new from their uniform to the way of working. This time, too, the stand articulated by the Sangh could have political ramifications as the BJP Government in Haryana has already committed itself to a Jat quota after the recent unrest. Reservation has helped weaker sections of the society and if the affluent solutions also demand reservation, it does not sound good. The affluent should surrender reservation for the upliftment of weaker sections. At this rate we will have more and more caste, creed and religious feelings in the society and that will in turn hamper the developmental aspect of the country in the long run.
