The Patels of Gujarat are a reasonably well off community who have also made a name for themselves in USA by becoming owners of motels and shops. In Gujarat they are a politically influential community and are well represented in almost all spheres. Do they deserve reservation under OBC quota for which they have launched an agitation?

According to your thread, Patels are reasonably well off.

 If Patels are economically well off and politically influential in Gujarat, I'm all against Patel agitation for OBC. This agitation is meaningless and uncalled for.

I advocate reservation for economically backward. Caste based reservations will create distance between communications.

Not only in USA but all over the world Patels are known for their entrepreneurship. I have seen them fill the telephone directories and yellow pages of business community whichever country I visited right from Africa to Canada and Australia to Maldives.

As far reservation is concerned, I am of the opinion, either all reservation should go or all be included irrespective of cast and creed.  The only criteria for any reservation is ability, the qualification and there is no other way this country will come out of petty politics that we are witnessing in the name of vote bank today.

Today you have Patels and Jaats influential communities with land and money tomorrow it will be Thakurs, Pandits and Baniyas (The only casts left) so give them all the facilities of reservation in one go and settle the issue forever. That will help reduce the political chaos too.

Reservation for skilled, ability to contribute to the society should be only basis. Cate based reservations split the country. Patels movement for reservations in OBC is unjustified.

Patels are a very enterprising community and almost all of them are successful entrepreneurs in various fields. I have a friend from this community who is a member of a large group of this community, all of those people are very rich construction contractors. Why do they even need reservation?

Not only Patels, all are habituated to have freebies. So, there is no wonder despite being in an economically strong condition Patels too demand for reservations. Reservations are a plague to this country. These Reservations split the country on caste basis.

Reservation should be based on Economical condition and not be on the basis of Community basis.

I agree. Reservations should be based on economic  condition. People who are in a better condition despite being in a reserved cadre are not justified to demand a  reservation in OBC.

It has become almost a fashion for the infinite number of communities to demand reservation. In truth, the communities which really need reservation for viable reasons are unable to get it, one such community is the Dhangar community in Maharashtra, which is the community of shepherds, they really need it and they do not get it while others do. Again this agitation by Patels is alleged to be because the madam of Janpath st. has ordered so.

There seems some political strength behind Hardik, else he was not able to gather a huge crowd in few days. It looks he wants quick entry in politics. But for this he and his supports are spreading violence in Gujrat, that is not a correct way.
