Supreme Court took the noble initiative by rationalising the Atrocities against SC,ST Act. Objective? Objective ? To eliminate rampant misuse of the Atrocities Act.

This is now sought to be neutralised by the ruling dispensation by promulgating an Ordinance. Empowerment of the elite SC/ST,who have been reaping the fruits of reservations , generations after generations ?

The poorest of the poor SC/ST are not even aware of their rights. But, who cares for them in view of the vicious compulsions of vote-bank politics ? Let them reap the fruits of reservation policy instead of the affluent dalits. Every indian will support the move.

Now, the casteist union minister Paswan wants another ordinance to be promulgated by the government. He has now demanded application of the reservation roster to all cases of promotion of SC/ST. This politically motivated suggestion is in gross violations of Supreme court’s verdicts. Merit becomes the casualty,as always.

I fail to understand whether the Parliament is supreme or the Supreme court is sovereign?

What happens to our Fundamental Right : Right to Equality before Law?
