The new constitutional backward class

Who are the backward class of citizens

Post seven decades of independence, the failure  to answer this question has seen a rise in number of demands by several rich, dominant and powerful castes to be included as backward classes (BCs) to attain the benefits of quota and reservations in government jobs and educational institutions.

On April 10, the 123rd amendment to the Constitution was passed  in Lok Sabha. This will set the course for establishing a constitutional NCBC.  Article 338B - the new article that is set to be inserted into the Constitution is similar to the Articles 338 and 338A that created the National Commission for Scheduled Caste and the National Commission for Scheduled Tribes respectively. This move will bring BCs in league with the SC/STs as victims of exclusion, discrimination, and violence.  It has simply turned social justice on its head.

Once the 123rd amendment becomes law, it will be curtains for Article 340. The new proposed system will treat the developmental issues related to Backward Classes on a par with grave issues of untouchability and caste discrimination suffered by SCs and STs. Is there condition anywhere nearly as bad as the daily discrimination faced by SCs and STs.  The new law would simply create a way for  BCs to smuggle  into the tent meant for SCs.
