Reservation a violation of rights of the deserving: Varun Gandhi

Last Updated: Tuesday, February 5, 2013 - 18:43

Moradabad (UP): Bharatiya Janata Party MP Varun Gandhi Tuesday said reservation in jobs for SC/STs should be done away with as it is against the interests of general public and in violation of the rights of the deserving.
"I was the only MP to raise voice against reservations," claimed Gandhi during a function at Hindu College here, adding that there should be no compromise on the level of efficiency particularly in crucial jobs like in the health sector.
Commenting on the functioning of current crop of MPs, Gandhi said most of them neglected their constituencies whereas in advanced countries, representatives of the people made every effort to be in constant touch with the electorate.

The Pilibhit MP said giving maximum time to his constituency was one of his top priorities in order to address the grievances of the people.

On the recent violation of ceasefire along the LoC in J&K in which an Indian soldier was beheaded and another shot dead by Pakistan troops, Gandhi said the issue would have found greater prominence in any other country.

Talking about the youth, Gandhi said that they should come forward to contribute to society since they were not only the future but also the present of the country.
