So far the UPA has fobbed off taking a stand by claiming that it is awaiting the Misra Commission Report. Now it will have to take a stand. But tacitly the Government is already committed to implementing these recommendations, thus appease the minorities in the crucial 3Es.
The Misra Commission has propounded some novel diktats in its report which should be recorded in “Ripley’s Believe It or Not”: One is: To deny SC quotas to those who had converted to Islam and Christianity is “religious discrimination”! Another is: The country needs a “totally secular criterion” on who are and are not entitled to reservations.
