Quota, Loan Waiver and other Quick FixesApr 11, 2008
This UPA government is good at only one thing- ruthlessly spending tax payers’ money. Government has implemented the quota in IIMs (Indian Institutes of Management), AIIMS (All India Institute of Medical Science) and IITs (Institutes of Technology). The new policy would take the overall reservation in the Government-funded higher education institutions from the current 22.5 per cent (for SC and ST students) to 49.5 per cent.
Now this will put pressure on existing resources. Government instead of generating resource, they will somehow start the new session based on quota. Even if they provide resources, they will use taxpayers’ money directly. They could better setup good schools and colleges to provide education from start using taxpayers' money. But no, they do not want to solve problem. They want to show the illiterate people from lower caste – how favorable this government is for them? If they solve the problem then in next election they have to search new problem to ask for vote. So this is ok for all the corrupt leaders.
