CPI Questions the SC Verdict on Reservation
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India has issued the following statement today (on May 5, 2021) on the Supreme Court judgment on reservation:
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India questions the veracity of the apex court judgment reiterating the capping on reservation at 50 per cent. The court also rejected the Maratha reservation.
The verdict raises the fundamental question of the authority of the government as well as the apex court on taking such a decision. It must be noted here that the central government has already crossed 50 per cent reservation limit when it awarded 10 per cent reservation to upper castes on economic grounds. Also, the Tamil Nadu government has put its reservation crossing the cap under 9th Schedule.
The Party will comment in detail after studying the judgment.
