Amid the ongoing deadlock between the centre and the opposition parties over various issues, a constitution amendment bill that gives states the right to make their own list of Other Backward Classes got the assent of the Opposition. This comes at a time when the opposition parties have been targeting the government since the beginning of the monsoon session over matters such as the farmers’ protest and the alleged Pegasus spyware scandal. Though a constitutional amendment bill requires two-thirds majority to get passed in the parliament, the passage of the bill will not be an issue since the opposition has come on board. In this episode of the Editorial our Managing Editor Mr Sujit Nair speaks about OBC Reservation and demands for caste based census.
