OBC quota judgements online

Posted in Uncategorized by realitycheck on April 10, 2008

The OBC quota judgements ( I guess they will now be known as Ashok Kumar Thakur) are available online.

Chief Justice K.G.Balakrishnan   

Jus Dalveer Bhandari

Jus Pasayat and Jus Thakker

Jus Raveendran


I will be reading them later to see if the most obvious question is answered:

“It is acceptable to give further benefits to a caste that is able to get seats in the open category ?” If it is not acceptable, then do we not need data to prevent it from happening ?

The five-year “suggestion” for reviewing the caste lists is D.O.A (Dead on Arrival) as are the various cut-offs for identifying the creamy layer. 

In fact, I predict the creamy layer criteria will be subverted faster than you can say, “Atleast, shut up now about data Mr. Reality Check”

Enjoy !

    Sad day for India.

    Remember what Mark Twain said,

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    All self respecting Indians now it is time .. to vote..
    with your feet.
    Is there a way to renounce Indian citizenship and become a refugee!!!
