Prof K Nageshwar said that Congress wants to get BC votes by promising to enhance existing quota from 27 to 52 per cent. He stated that the Congress took the decision based on the Mandal Commission report. It is a counterattack to BJP’s strategy of extending 10 per cent quota to EBCs. He opined that upper castes are less than 10 per cent in several states but the NDA government is giving 10 per cent reservation to them. The election promise of Congress will open a debate on reservation system in India, he stated.
