What have we come to?

At least 14 people killed... A community (Gujjars) clamouring to be included in a more backward category (ST) than the one they are in now (OBC)... What have we come to? Thanks to sinister casteist politics, Indians are at each others throats. Apparently, the BJP had promised the Gujjars before the state elections that it would recommend their inclusion in the ST category but didn't follow it up after coming to power. This reaffirms that reservation and other benefits should be accorded only on the basis of need. Those who need it most should get it. Why should politicians continue to divide us for their votes?
