The Sarva Jana Satta, a Lok Satta Party affiliate, today demanded formulation of a new reservation policy after a comprehensive debate at the national level to ensure that every child realizes its potential.

After garlanding Ambedkar's statue on Tank Bund to mark his 55th death anniversary, the Sarva Jana Satta organized a function at the Lok Satta Party headquarters to pay homage to the architect of the Constitution.

Addressing a meeting, Lok Satta Party's acting State Working President V. Laxman Balaji and Sarva Jana Satta President Eeda Chennayya said that mere reservations without providing quality education to all would not serve their purpose. Vested interests are using reservations to fuel fights among people belonging to various castes and religions. And there are demands for increasing the quantum of reservations for certain sections and removal of the creamy layer for implementing reservations.

The leaders said that against such a backdrop a new national reservation policy had to be formulated to realize Ambedkar's dreams.

Lok Satta Party General Secretary G. Raja Reddy, Secretary V. Vijayender Reddy, Sarva Jana Satta Vice President P.V. Rao took part in the meeting.
