'Nobody Has the Power to Abolish Reservation': Nitish Kumar's Assurance to Bihar Dalits
November 06, 2018
Gaya: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has said "nobody has the power" to abolish reservation for repressed classes and those who make statements to this effect wish to give rise to tensions in society.
Kumar was addressing Scheduled Caste (SC) and Scheduled Tribe (ST) workers of his party, Janata Dal (United), from the Magadh region at a conclave here on Wednesday.
"Some people wish to give rise to tensions and differences in the society. Ambedkar's (draft of) Constitution was approved by the Constituent Assembly. The provision for reservation was made to help the marginalised sections join the social mainstream," he said.
