Exclude bureaucrats, MLAs, MPs, rich from reservations: JP

The ongoing agitation by ‘Gujarat Patels’ for the status of ‘Other Backward Castes’ should lay the ground for a nation-wide comprehensive discussion on rationalisation of reservations, said Lok Satta Party founder president Jayaprakash Narayan.

The issue needed a creative response and not confrontation. The time had come to reform reservations and a fair system of reservatison that would positively impact the lives of all was needed, he said in a statement here on Wednesday.

Dr.JP said that reservation benefits reached only those privileged few who were well educated and countless poor among SCs and OBCs were struggling for opportunities. On the other hand, the poor and despondent among OCs developed hatred towards those garnering reservations. Except those well-to-do sections who were enjoying reservation benefits, others feel they had been given a raw deal by successive governments. The crisis could only be resolved by making some changes in the reservation policy, he said.

Proposing some changes, Dr.JP said IAS, IPS and other officers, MLAs, MPs, doctors and the rich should be removed from the purview of reservations to give the benefit to the eligible poor.

For the poor students among OCs if their parents were not literate, then such students should be given additional marks to compete with other students, facilities be put in place so that no merit and talented poor student was deprived of access to higher studies due to poverty and a system be evolved to provide guaranteed quality school education, he said.

The Lok Satta leader said that with the above proposals the reservations could be brought down gradually and in 25 years, one could do away with reservations. B. R. Ambedkar hoped that rulers would provide quality education to all without any discrimination and create a system which did not require reservations.

But the political system in the country had failed to provide proper education and perpetuated poverty and used reservations to divide people and garner votes, he said.

Pattiseema lift scheme of no use, says JP

He urges State to expedite Polavaram project

Lok Satta Party national president Jayaprakash Narayan has asked Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu to expedite Polavaram project and complete it in 3 years. At the same time he said there was absolutely no use of taking up Pattiseema Lift Irrigation Scheme (PLIS).

Addressing a media conference here on Monday, Dr. Jayaprakash said there would be waste of public money if Pattisesma project was taken up as tapping the flood waters above 14 feet is not possible in present circumstances due to various reasons including augmentation of water, rainfall, land acquisition and other factors.

He asked why the State government was not kick starting works of Polavaram project which is the only source to interlinking Krishna and Godavari, to irrigate uplands and drought hit region of Rayalaseema and to stabilise Godavari and Krishna delta and also to provide drinking water to Visakhapatnam.

Speaking on the special status, the former IAS officer said the State would be badly affected if the revenue deficit was not compensated by the Centre and alleged that Mr Naidu is not asking the Centre to give waivers to industries going to be set up in the State. However, Mr. Narayan welcomed the land pooling system which is being implemented by the State government in connection with the new capital. He did not find any wrong in applying the land acquisition act in connection with the new capital and state government has full powers to acquire land from farmers if the land is really important for building the new capital. He commented that no state or country could be developed without acquiring land and opposing the land acquisition is very dangerous development for the country.

On ragging issue, he made it clear that the present acts passed by the State government in past are enough and there is no necessity of bringing new act on the lines of Nirbhaya act as told by HRD Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao.

Let Us Give Way to Resolute Action to Transform India atleast by 2022: Dr JP

"My greetings to all Indians on completion of 68 years of Independence. We are like no other nation. 5000 years of continuing history and civilisation, unmatched linguistic and ethnic diversity, peaceful coexistence of every faith and belief known to man, and extraordinarily rich and varied cultural heritage - all these make India an unlikely nation-state. And yet this great nation was brought together by Mahatma Gandhi's genius and the untiring efforts of our founding fathers.

Happily, we disproved the forebodings of sceptics and doomsayers, and continue to endure as one nation united, and yet celebrating our rich diversity and preserving our liberty. Increasing urbanisation, growing middle classes and a vibrant young population unburdened by past baggage make our bonds of unity stronger everyday.

Unity and liberty alone are not sufficient. Our long-suffering people need prosperity, opportunity, true empowerment and a clean and efficient political and governance system that can help fulfil our aspirations and make us stand tall and proud. In these spheres, we have a long way to go. This is time for introspection.

Poor infrastructure and fractious politics with a lust for power sans purpose are perpetuating mass poverty and suffering. Appallingly poor quality of education and healthcare are perpetuating caste oppression and denying the bulk of our children the opportunity to fulfill their potential and realise their dreams. The recent parliamentary paralysis underscores our deepening political and governance crisis. Centralisation in a vast and complex nation is holding all of us back. Weak, disempowered local governments and inefficient, dysfunctional bureaucracy are sapping our energies and weakening our morale. A corrupt, plutocratic, plunder-driven political process that seeks power devoid of public purpose is making our democracy hollow. Law's delays and unequal application of laws are undermining rule of law.

All these challenges can, and must, be addressed swiftly. We do not have the luxury of time to wait indefinitely to set things right. The rest of the world marches ahead. In a globalised world our inadequacies will make future generations pay a heavy, intolerable price.

We need a sense of urgency and purpose to overcome our failings. Democracy cannot be an alibi for failure. This is the time to resolve to reengineer our instruments of state to make them a vibrant machine to take us to our destination. Our people deserve better lives; our children deserve greater opportunity, our nation deserves a pride of place in the world. It is time empty rhetoric and shibboleths give way to resolute action. It is never too late. If we now act, by 2022, when we complete 75 years of freedom, India can overcome all our shortcomings and march ahead unhindered. Let us aim at that goal and transform India. That is the only ambition worthy of our great national movement and our glorious civilisation." - Dr Jayaprakash Narayan, Lok Satta founder
