Shah recalls Cong's Mandal stand, slams it on OBC issue

IndiaTimes Wednesday, 6 December 2023
Home minister Amit Shah criticized Congress for neglecting the recommendations of commissions under Kaka Kalelkar and B P Mandal, as well as Rajiv Gandhi's opposition to OBC quota. Shah claimed that PM Modi has been actively working for the welfare of backward classes, unlike Congress. The debate in Lok Sabha was centered around the J&K Reservation (Amendment) Bill and the J&K Reorganisation (Amendment) Bill, both of which were passed. The outcome of the recent elections in Rajasthan, MP, and Chhattisgarh, where Congress lost, has further boosted BJP's stance on OBC issues.
