Contradictions of India

Read this news in The Times of India - National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC) has recommended to raise the income limit of "creamy layer" for OBCs from 4.5L to 9L per annum.

In a country where poverty level has been set at an individual income of Rs 32 per day, a family income of 4.5 lakh was not considered sufficient for defining who should be considered "backward" enough to be eligible for the quota benefits.

What is it ? A new attack on our sensibilities !

The problem here is every organization like this is Government controlled some way or the other so obvious political aspirations will seep in their reports to favor the current Govt.

This is exactly my point Shreya. That the main motivation of all these steps is not the actual upliftment but reaping political benefits.

Though this is such a common knowledge and has been spoken and written about so many times that it sounds cliched to say it again.
