This is the same congress which dint think about its former leaders while going for reservation for OBCs. Nehru was the person, who once said that –
Help should be given on economic considerations and not on caste… I dislike any kind of reservation, more particularly in service. I react strongly against anything which leads to inefficiency and second-rate standards. I want my country to be a first class country in everything.
Here is the news –
