As per Hardik Patel there are 25Crores of Patels , for whom he asks for Reservation beyond the 50% ceiling imposed by Supreme Court. That means he wants to snatch way around 25% of seats from the General quota.
First thing Patels of Gujrat are among the wealthiest Farmers and Business class and such people do not deserve special support from the Government.
There is a positive side of this agitation that it points out to the countrymen and the Government to scrap the concept of Reservation completely. The founding fathers of Indian Constitution had provided reservation of 22.5% only for 10 years and then gradually reduce it. But actually Political masters misused for their vote bank policies and went on increasing upto 49.5%.
So now since it can't be increased beyond 50% it is the most opportune time to reduce from 49.5% to gradually upto 10% or completely scrap it in the present form and launch Merit cum Means Scholarships to all categories irrespective of cast and creed and including all religions. more
