This way we are overlooking, a significant section of backward class who feel dif- ficulties to even manage their daily meal. They can never be benefited through this reservation pol- icy. During the arguments on legality of 27% Quota for OBCs, we have seen the examples of Rikshapull- ers, Sweepers etc but when it came in fixing the creamy layer limit, we totally forgot them. In support of 27% reservation for OBCs, it had been submitted that, 97.5% of OBC population had a daily income of less than Rs 80 but when it came for distribution of reservation benefits, income of Rs 1200/- per day will be beneficiary of reservation. Govt‟s argument for hike in creamy layer limit to keep with economic changes sounds absurd, as if the economy is changing for particular caste. If there is inflation, that is for whole Indian society irre- spective of caste. The transition of creamy layer limit from 1lakh to 2.5 lakhs to 4.5lkahs and now in Uttar Pradesh it is up to 5 lakhs, looks, as if our backwardness is increasing along with our economy. The whole decision of hike in creamy layer income limit will snatch the benefits from poor among back- ward class and widen the social disparity. This is fully a political gimmick to garner vote bank. The need of the hour is to register our strong protest against such undemocratic and antipoor policy. Please come forward and sign the petition and forward it to others. http://www.petitiononline.com/YFE/petition.html Editor YFE CRUSA DER
