Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kumar Vishwas, on Sunday, while speaking on reservation row said that his party has a clear stand from the beginning that caste-based reservation should end gradually.
“Our party has a clear stand from the very begining that caste-based reservation should end gradually and it should be replaced by reservation for economically backward classes,” Kumar said.
Kumar was in Ahmedabad to perform at Indian Institute of Management-Ahmedabad (IIMA)’s annual Chaos festival.
Earlier, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan had said that it is necessary to debate why the country had not achieved the desired objectives of the reservations.
“I am not against reservations. Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar had put the cap on reservation for ten years thinking that by that time we will be able to create such a society in independent India that everybody will come on the same level,” she had said.
