The activists and academicians working for the rights of the reserved category candidates, however, feel that it is the lack of sincere effort and a conscious conspiracy by the institutions and the government that these posts are lying vacant. “It is hard to believe that 40 percent of seats are vacant. Non availability of a suitable candidate is a routine assessment by the government,” said Rajya Sabha MP D Raja.
Raja also alleged that it is the mindset of the establishments towards the reserved classes that these posts do not get filled up.Dalit activist Paul Divakar also blames the prevailing prejudices against the OBCs and other backward classes. “The institutions give a second class treatment to these candidates. Instead to make them suitable for the mainstream the institutions should bear the cost so that the OBCs can get adapted into the mainstream,” said Divakar of the National Campaign for Dalit Human Rights.BJP leader Udit Raj who also represents the community blames the premium institutions. “Instead of providing them a cushion so that they can compete with the mainstream, institutions adopt a discriminatory policy,” said Raj.
