Congress government is all set to satisfy Muslim votebank by giving them reservation.. But it is important to revisit what nehru said on reservations,
In a letter addressed to all Chief Ministers on 27 June 1961, Jawaharlal Nehru said:
…I have referred above to efficiency and to our getting out of our traditional ruts. This necessitates our getting out of the old habit of reservations and particular privileges being given to this caste or that group…. I dislike any kind of reservation, more particularly in services. I react strongly against anything which leads to inefficiency and second-rate standards…. If we go in for reservations on communal and caste basis, we swamp the bright and able people and remain second-rate or third-rate. I want my country to be a first class country in everything. The moment we encourage the second-rate, we are lost. I am grieved to learn how far this business of reservation has gone based on communal considerations…. This way lies not only folly but disaster.’ .
