Greater job opportunities and a broad based economic growth is what we need in India: Raghuram Rajan

The ex-RBI governor and renowned economist Raghuram Rajan on Sunday put forward an argument advocating greater employment opportunities and a broad-based economic growth policy instead of short-term solutions like reservations, to ensure that no community feels discriminated.

According to Rajan the reason why so many communities feel left out and discriminated is that there are not enough job options and the economic growth is not broad-based. Our focus needs to be on an ultimate solution and not on the short-term solutions like reservations which are convenient and can break the fabric of the country, thus doing more harm than good.

The comment by Rajan was made in the light of the Patidar Andolan that has been going on now for more than a year by the Patidar community of Gujarat, who have been demanding reservations in jobs. This is a phenomenon that has been taking place in multiple areas of the country now. The powerful castes in most of the communities have switched to agitation and mass inconvenience to ensure their demands are met. One of the most recent examples can be the Jat agitation, where the govt. finally ended up giving community reservations in Jobs.
