UPA encouraging religious conversion: Dr Swamy

via HK Correspondent published on May 30, 2006

NEW DELHI: Janata Party President Dr Subramanian Swamy has alleged that the present attempt by the UPA Government to introduce reservations in the institutions of higher learning and in private corporate sector was a conspiracy to encourage nefarious foreign forces, ‘especially those that want to launch a programme of massive religious conversion in India’. In a statement issued to the media on late Monday, Dr Swamy, a former Union Minister for Law and Company Affairs, pointed out that the research and studies carried out by the Central Statistical Organisation in 1998 proved beyond doubt that the backward communities, scheduled castes and scheduled tribes have been given due representation in all government services, educational institutions and public sector units in accordance with the per centage of their population. “According to the economic census of the Central Statistical Organization, 33% of all corporate enterprises are owned by members of other  backward community, while 12% were owned by scheduled  castes and tribes.  So it makes no sense to seek to reserve jobs in the corporate sector on the basis of caste when it’s  ownership is already in the ratio of castes,” Dr Swamy, an economist of international repute, said in the statement. Based on these facts and the evil designs of the crooked HRD minister Arjun Singh, Dr Swamy asked the President to demand the resignation of the UPA government and order fresh election.   


He remarked that the concept of social justice must begin by ensuring that children of the backward classes and scheduled castes and tribes were provided first rate primary and secondary education so that they could be enabled to compete for admission on the basis of merit at the college and higher levels.  “Reservations for unqualified candidates on the basis of quota will seriously hamper India’s knowledge revolution taking place especially in the cutting-edge  applications in IT, bio-tech and pharmaceutical industries,” said Dr Swamy.


He also said that the attempt by the UPA Government to impose quotas for other  backward class in higher education was anti-national and would only facilitate a downward spiral in academic excellence.  “India will suffer in vitally needed innovation and quality R&D for becoming a world power by 2020,” Dr Swamy warned the government. “The HRD Minister  Arjun Singh is playing the same role as Jai Chand did in past Indian history by pursuing his personal interest to benefit the  foreigner who has malafide intention for India,” Dr Swamy pointed out.
