Anti-Reservation Protests All Over The Nation

with 5 comments

The protests against reservation has been going around for quite a long time and no luck till date. The speeches given by Arjun Singh is making the protesters even more fierce and problem is getting big day by day. As an individual I also feel the same as the protesters feel. There shouldn't be any reservations.

Ok, coming to the point…there is going to be protests in most parts of the country on 20th and 21st.

Check out http://protestcentral.blogspot.com/ for information about protest activities in your city and how you can join in the protests.

Its better to let know the visitors of this blog about "Why Anti-Reservation"

Why we oppose reservation?
1) It is going to kill meritocracy, and hence destroy India's image as a technology hub.
2) It is dividing India into caste lines which our freedom fighters and social reformers fought so hard to eliminate.
3) It is against the fundamental right to equality as safeguarded by the Constitution of India.
4) The benefits of reservation have been denied to really deserving people by the rich and powerful in their own classes.
5) Reservation is just a populist measure used by politicians for electoral gains.
