BJP MLA slams Centre for minority reservation

Ranchi: BJP MLA Raghuvar Das on Friday slammed
the Centre’s decision yesterday to give a sub-quota of 4.5 per
cent to minorities within the 27 per cent reservation for the
OBCs.
"Taking out 4.5 per cent from the OBC quota to give it to
minorities in unconstitutional. There is no provision in the
constitution to accord reservation on the basis of religion,"
Das said while raising the issue in the state assembly.

"This is vote back politics," Das said and alleged the
"face" of the Congress was "exposed".
Reacting sharply, Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantric)
MLA Pradip Yadav demanded that the BJP-led Jharkhand
government should also introduce the reservation on the lines
of the Central government.
