nominate Meira Kumar for the post.
President - Pratibha Patel
PM - Sonia Gandhi (oops SMS)
LS Speaker - Meira Kumar
how does it truly change anything?
it's not as if till now, there was discrimination against Dalits for selecting speaker
or by becoming Speaker, she will do anything for welfare of Dalits
Her father occupied MP status for 40 years or so. He rose to the position of Defense minister and deputy PM.
After his death, she started representing Saharsa and has ever since kept the seat.
Her status as a 'Dalit' was uplifted years ago by her father's position.
Reservation should not be to uplift individuals or individual families, but the community as a whole.
Once a person is elected from a reserved seat, his/her status as a dalit should be removed
then no caste no class all would be fine... no one would raise question let anyone be chosen and let anyone rule..."
for that a caste or religion based reservation should stop first
if after 60 years any reservation is needed it should be based on fianancial condition
ya she deserved it and the basis of these post should be based on merit
well frankly apj abdul kalam deverved the president's job more than pratibha patil
whats the creditential of this meera? she is just another product of dynasty system
