No controversy over reservation: Paswan

Rajgir, Oct 6 (UNI) LJP chief and Union Food and Consumer Protection Minister Ramvilas
Paswan today dismissed the controversy over reservation saying it had no basis as Prime
Minister Narendra Modi had already assured that reservation benefits would continue as
per provision of the constitution.
Mr Paswan while addressing valedictory session of two day national convention of his
party here, said that Centre was now contemplating to provide reservation to Extremely
Backward Classes (EBCs) as per provision made by Bihar government for giving
reservation.
Centre would also give reservation to EBCs, which would be in addition to 27 percent
reservation being given at present, he stated.
Union Minister said the controversy over construction of a Ram temple at disputed plot
in Ayodhya was pending in Supreme Court and any solution could be found only after
consultation among all parties concerned or through verdict of the court.
The decision of the court on the issue would be binding to all and parties in the case
would have to accept it, he remarked.
Mr Paswan came down heavily on RJD chief Lalu Prasad saying he was himself not
only involved in fodder scam and the alleged Railway hotels tender scam but also pushed
his sons Tej Pratap Yadav and Tejaswi Prasad Yadav on same path.
Both his sons were involved in a large number of irregularities, he said adding that
Mr Prasad had ruined their career at initial stage.
