Representation for 90 pc of population in Indias progress and future is our vision: Rahul

  • | Friday | 24th May, 2024

Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said that whatever the backward classes, the Adivasis, Dalits, poor people from the general caste and the minorities, farmers and labourers have got, is due to the Constitution of the country. The senior Congress leader said that the Constitution is not only a book but is a process of transfer of power which started in 1947. "It is a transfer of power and a document of equality," he said.  However, he said, it has failed to fulfill the expectations of its founding members since its benefits are not extended uniformly to all groups. "90 per cent of the Indian population that fall under the categories of backward communities, Dalits, Tribals, minorities and economically weaker sections among the forward castes still do not have a corresponding share of representation in the Military, Media, judiciary, bureaucracy or the Corporate World. In this backdrop, the caste census only seeks to establish Hindustan ki sachai (Indias truth). Our vision for the next 10 years would to ensure representation for 90 percent of the population in Indias progress and future, the senior leader said. Gandhi was speaking in Panchkula on Wednesday at Rashtriya Samvidhan Sammelan (National Constitutional Convention) organised by the Samruddha Bharat Foundation Gandhi further said that the BJP leaders are saying they will end reservation but the Congress will not allow it. Reservation is the voice of 90 percent of India. I have got the clarity that I have to work to ensure representation for the 90% of our population. And this battle has to be fought with love, respect and strength, he said. Targeting the media, Gandhi said the media does not have representatives from backward classes, thats why they never show real public issues, farmers problems. In all the industrial and corporate houses, there is no representation of 90 percent of people. In Bureaucracy, Judiciary, Military also, backward representation is similar, he pointed out. I would like to tell all workers and leaders of the BJP – no force in the world can touch this book (Indias Constitution). If you try to tear and throw away this book (Constitution), watch what the country and Congress party do to you, he stressed throwing a challenge at the BJP.
