Communities Demanding Reservations Should Understand, Govts Don’t Create Jobs Anymore

Vivek Kaul writes “The era when the government created jobs is long gone. Of course, people still do not realise this and they demand a reservation in government jobs. And given this, a reservation of 16% even if it comes through is not going to help Marathas ( the latest demand for reservation)much on the jobs front.
The trouble is that if Marathas do manage to get a 16% reservation in jobs as well as education, other communities might want a reservation as well. The trouble is we can’t go beyond 100%.
