"Reservation is still needed for Dalits and backwards. We can firmly say reservation will continue for them... Have they (these communities) achieved considerable and required improvement in the society? They still need reservation benefits," Kumar said while addressing the 639th Shiromani Ravidas Jayanti in the state capital.
In an apparent reference to RSS and BJP, Kumar said that on the one hand there are people who celebrate the birth anniversaries of BR Ambedkar and Ravidas, while on the other hand they talk about reviewing the existing reservation system.
"BJP supports reservation just to portray themselves as pro-reservationist, but its roots emanate from RSS, whose Sangh Chalak had suggested review of reservation during the Bihar Assembly polls," Kumar said.
