Aurangabad: Stating that reservation will not guarantee employment as jobs are shrinking, Union minister Nitin Gadkari on Saturday said there is a “school of thought”, which wants policy-makers to consider the poorest of poor in every community.
￼The problem with the quota is that backwardness is becoming a political interest. Everyone says I am backward. Nitin Gadkari, Union minister
Gadkari made the remarks responding to reporters’ questions on the ongoing agitation by the Marathas for reservation.
“Let’s us assume the reservation is given. But there are no jobs. Because in banks, the jobs have shrunk because of IT. The government recruitment is frozen. Where are the jobs?” he asked.
Gadkari added Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis is trying to resolve the Maratha quota demand.
