Why do we need reserved seat during elections??

(RECEIVED VIA EMAIL)


I am a proud Indian but I doubt that I would continue to feel like this if the people running our country keep using us as a commodity....

Recently I was in Bastar during the State Assembly Elections and it was very sad to see that an election which was being held in a Schedule 5 area to choose a tribal leader was completely in the hands of non-tribals of that particular area...

Maybe my community has been enslaved for so many years that when these anti-social elements visit tribal villages they are given utmost respect by referring them as Seth/Babu/Sir....

These Seth/Babu/Sir controlled their lives so much that they blindly believe in them...

Its very obvious that nobody sincerely wants to change the lives of the Adivasi otherwise 60 years of independence and both Congress and BJP has done nothing to empower us....

And Naxalites,they have been in Bastar for nearly 30 years but what have they done?Their presence has made it easier for Anti-Adivasi Organisations to start things like "Salwa Judum" to displace us from our homeland and give free licence to kill innocent tribal in the name of naxalite....and those survive are languishing in jails .Some of the boys and girls put in jail in the name of naxalism are not even 18.....

With the prevailing system do you think that the Adivasis have any future in this country??
