10% reservation will enhance confidence of 'New India': PM

PTI

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said ten per cent reservation in education and government jobs for economically weaker sections will enhance the confidence of 'New India'.

Addressing the concluding session of the BJP National convention at Ramlila Maidan in New Delhi yesterday, Mr Modi asserted that the new arrangement will not encroach upon existing quota for other sections of the society.

He said Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas and Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat are the mottos of his government. He also listed the government's welfare works done for different sections of society.

Mr Modi said earlier governments saw farmers as only voters, while his government was constantly trying to address challenges faced by them. He added that the NDA government is working day and night to double farmers' income by 2022.

The Prime Minister described the proposed grand alliance of opposition parties as a failed experiment alleging that they are coming together as these parties want to form a helpless government to promote nepotism and corruption.

He said BJP, on the other hand, wants a strong dispensation for all-round development of the country. Mr Modi said the people should decide whether they want a strong government or a weak one formed by opposition alliance out of desperation. He said Congress-led opposition parties are forming alliances just to oust BJP out of power in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

The Prime Minister also slammed the governments of Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal, Chhattisgarh for withdrawing general consent to the CBI in their states. He asked why they were afraid and what irregularities they have done.
