Discuss the relevance of reservation policy for scheduled castes and tribes in India with special reference to political developments during freedom struggle.
Level(3)View/Post Answer

2 Discuss the validity of reservation policy in country''s political discourse with reference to India''s freedom struggle.

Reservation is a pre-independence policy inaugurated by GOI Act, 1935 which created the schedules listing the scheduled castes and scheduled tribes. The policy itself is an outcome of poona pact (1932) between Mahatma Gandhi and B.R. Ambedkar, in which the latter was forced to withdraw the claims by untouchable castes to a separate electorate in return for guaranteed representation in legislature and the broad assurance that nation would do everything in its power to end untouchability and caste discrimination.

Thus, reservation is fundamentally a political promise made in acknowledgement of the fact that caste literally excludes sizeable communities from Indian society.

Since independence was demanded in the name of the Indian nation, and since the nation is supposed to be an egalitarian form of community, the poona pact was a compromise whereby the untouchables agreed to forego their demand of a nation (electorate) of their own and be a part of the larger nation in spite of their caste exclusion.

In short, reservation is intended to be a response, from a nationalist movement led by the upper castes to the bitter truth in Ambedkar’s poignant statement: “Gandhiji, I have no homeland.”
