Nothing new -- N.Ram blames BJP

In N.Ram's world view, it is only the BJP which is practicing such politics and only the BJP needs to abstain from caste politics.

The Hindu : Opinion / Editorials : Beyond the temporary truce

Clearly, Ms. Raje's rash election promise of conferring ST status on the Gujjars has returned to haunt her. Her experience should serve as a lesson on the dangers in recklessly playing the caste card in order to woo voters.

If the Meenas feel threatened by the Gujjars eating into their ST pie,
the latter are aggrieved by the Vajpayee government's decision to
reclassify Jats as Other Backward Classes — a state of affairs that
points to the danger of encouraging competitive caste politics.
