Since Nitish is being seen as a villain among a large sections of Dalits, and is also an ethically beaten public figure right now, everything he says might appear bad. When India Inc is slowly but steadily moving towards integrating Dalit/Adivasis in their workforce chain, why is this man barking private sector quota at this juncture?
Whether reservations in the private sector are feasible or not depends on the political will of the governments. It is a globally proven fact that institutions with greater diversity are more successful and innovative and endure longer.
Nitish Kumar finds himself in a fix as he ditched the backward class constituency in jumping onto the BJP bandwagon. As an astute politician, he realised that all his rhetoric would not work with people. Therefore, he has come out with this trick of demanding a 50 per cent reservation in private sector.
