Take up OBC Census

As the Parliament session commences January31 for the budget session, the government can go for a move to count the number of OBCs in the country through the census enumeration that starts soon.  The Centre’s stand is that there is no uniform pattern to collect the numbers of OBCs population in the country, most opposition parties are asking for the same.

It’s ironic that we are now depending on the figures collected before Independence by the British rulers in the 1921 census. These figures projected over the decades won’t hold value after a century from now. We have every right to get the actual numbers of OBCs so that their welfare and development can be taken up on a solid note.

The BJP led Centre should not worry that disclosure of OBC population will lead to divisions within Hindu community. Even now, we are indirectly gathering the numbers through rough calculations like the numbers claimed by each caste or community. These figures are unreliable and unscientific too and it is the high time we get the accurate data.
