  • The recurrence of violent protests led by relatively well-off communities demanding reservation is perplexing. It was prosperous Patidars in Gujarat last year and Jats, prosperous land-owning community, in Haryana this year.
  • The agitations, in a way, point to the need to review the list of castes counted as OBCs and to deepen the definition of creamy layer.
