"Today in our country, there is no demand from any corner to do away with reservation. All the sections of the society have accepted this arrangement. Now people demand for their inclusion in it. There is also a consensus on the issue among political parties in Parliament,” PM said.
"I may have a lot of differences with Lalu, Nitish and Congress on other topics but on the issue of reservation, I have no difference with any political party. My views on reservation are same as of Lalu, Nitish or Congress," he cited.
Reassuring the reserved categories on it, the Prime Minister also referred to his EBC connection. "Moreover all of you know who am I. Where would have Modi been, had Baba Saheb Ambedkar not come. A person belonging to Extremely Backward caste reached here selling tea. But still some people are trying to impose an untruth despite clarifications from our side many times,” PM Modi stated.
Reminding people that neither the BJP-led NDA under the Prime Ministership of Atal Bihari Vajpayee nor BJP governments in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Goa, Haryana and
Maharastra touched the issue of reservation, PM Modi said that the provision of quota made with efforts of Ambedkar for the protection of dalits, backwards and under privilleged will not be tinkered with.
"They are spreading lies after lies. I am assuring you no body can even touch whatever has been done by Ambedkar for their protection," he said.
