Is it worth compromising merit for political gains?


Job reservations are a big cry, more so from different political quarters in India. This slogan has in fact outlived its life since a free and independent India is now aged 65 years. It’s a mystery that despite adding and enhancing reservation percentage every now and then both at the level of the Central Government and those in different States of the country, the cry for further provisions in the matters of recruitment and promotion flagrantly continues unabated. What about the merit? Most talented and brilliant candidates are very often ignored just to accommodate those who lack in merit but fall in some reserved category or the other. Who stops such categories to develop necessary merit in themselves and compete with the other talented ones? Why they should be offered incentives for the lack of merit? India, after all, needs meritorious people for its development. Merit generates quality of work, and it is this quality that elicits developments for the growth of the country. It is the sheer game of people in politics who exploit the situation to appease some category or the community from time to time to woo some particular segment of the voters for election purposes. There is factually no reason to compromise the factor of merit just for the sake of political gains. India’s future lies in merit and merit alone.

  2. SIR, FIRST LET ME CONGRATULATE YOU FOR TAKING UP THIS VERY SENSITIVE AND IMPORTANT ISSUE AS VERY FEW WOULD DARE TO EXPRESS THEIR FREE AND OPEN VIEWS ON THE SUBJECT. WHAT YOU HAVE WRITTEN IS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT AND EXPRESSION OF TRUTH WORD BY WORD, FOR WHICH YOU DESERVE ALL APPRECIATION. THIS IS ALSO TRUE AND A FACT THAT FUTURE OF OUR COUNTRY LIES IN MERIT AND MERIT ALONE. BUT THE BIG QUESTION HERE IS, “WHETHER WE CAN UNDO RESERVATION OF JOBS”? PERHAPS NOT. UNFORTUNATELY , THE LAW MAKERS OF OUR COUNTRY, WHO HAPPEN TO BE POLITICAL LEADERS OF DIFFERENT POLITICAL PARTIES WILL NEVER REPEAT NEVER ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN BECAUSE OF DIRTY VOTE BANK POLITICS. UNFORTUNATELY WE WILL HAVE TO LIVE WITH RESERVATION AT THE COST OF MERIT AND DEVELOPMENT.
