Reservation politics and India

Reservation politics are not a new thing for the India. Almost all politics parties in India have tried to use reservation politics for their advantage because mostly parties have shortage of the unique issues, therefore most of the political parties in India find it very easy to get victory in election by vowing reservation to the people. For the many years, this reservation politics has remained an easy way to gain victory in the election. This is the reason behind various governments in India increasing the reservation to the various castes and societies.

However all these parties forget to understand that these reservation politics if implemented only for the shake of election wins then they can create large scale unrests in the societies and ordinary people can find themselves helpless. Moreover these activities can fuel more inter caste rivalries. Already we all are seeing the violent Gujjar protest in the nation which is the outcome of this dirty politics. Second major problem with this whole reservation politics is that political leaders are only busy in throwing reservation without getting the actual data. Already there are many disputes over the number of the OBCs quoted by the government in the favor of demand for reservation to OBC.

Moreover there are many states in India where general categories are not getting the required presentation and have actually come in to the need of the reservation. In all these complex situations, our governments and political leaders need to provide the good solutions which are in actual favor of the various societies and nation as whole. Only providing reservations for getting votes are not a right option for the whole nation in the long run. Moreover all these things are putting major hurdles in the making India a strong nation.
