RSS Chief Backs Caste-Based Reservation, Says Akhand Bharat Will Materialize

Nagpur: Discrimination exists in our society, and reservations should continue as long as inequality persists, said Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Wednesday at an event in Nagpur.

He also reiterated that the ‘Akhand Bharat’ will become a reality before today’s youngsters become old, as those who separated from India in 1947 are now feeling that they made a mistake.

Bhagwat’s statement on reservations coincided with the Maratha community’s agitation for a quota.

“We kept our own fellow human beings behind in the social system. We did not care for them, and it continued for 2000 years. Until we provide them equality, some special remedies have to be there, and reservations are one of them. Hence, reservations have to continue till there is such discrimination. We at the RSS give all support to the reservations provided in the Constitution,” the RSS chief said.

If the sections of society that faced discrimination suffered for 2000 years, “why cannot we (those who did not face discrimination) accept some trouble for 200 more years,” he added.

Replying to a question by a student, Mohan Bhagwat said, “You will see it materialise before you get old. Because the conditions are becoming such that those who separated from India feel that they made a mistake,” the RSS chief said.
