PM Narendra Modi, while giving a speech in Rajya Sabha, mentioned reservation and said that Pandit Nehru was against it. In a letter written to the Chief Ministers of the country, he had said that I am against this and this should not happen in jobs at all. While reading the translation of Nehru’s letter, PM Modi said, ‘Nehru ji had written that I do not like any reservation. Doesn’t like reservation in jobs at all. I am against any step which promotes inefficiency. That’s why I say that Congress has been opposed to reservation by nature.
He said, ‘Nehru ji used to say that if SC, ST and OBC get reservation in jobs then the standard of government work will fall. He is at the root of the statistics that are counted today, not that many are here and that many are there. If he had been recruited in the government at that time and he had progressed through promotion, he would have been here. PM Modi said that Congress deprived the SC, ST and OBC of Jammu and Kashmir of their rights for 7 decades. Now that this article has been removed, we have made provisions regarding it and now Dalits and OBC people have got rights.
During this, Prime Minister Modi also mentioned the Presidential elections and said that Congress was against Draupadi Murmu ji. This showed his attitude towards the tribals. It would have been understandable if the Congress had been against us on ideological grounds in that election, but they had made a person from our locality their candidate. PM Modi said that scholarships for SC-ST category have increased in the 10 years of our government. Apart from this, enrollment of students of these categories in higher education has also increased. Enrollment of SC category students has increased by 44 percent, while that of ST students has increased by 65 percent. PM Modi said that enrollment of OBC category students has also increased by 45%.
He said that if you people lack data then ask from us. But do not create such narratives which tarnish your image. He said that Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas is not just a slogan but a guarantee of Modi. During this, PM Modi also read a poem sent by someone. It was written in it – Modi’s era of guarantee, country towards development. Shops running out of guarantee, find your location now.
