Theoretically speaking there are more ways than one to get some benefits for a completely neglected caste - vaddera.
In an already 'leader lead' confused state of our caste, which has more ignorant percentage than elite, it would be unwise to start another debate on DNT. This only adds to the benefits of the confusers, who have been living on caste.
Your consensus and debate type of approach to listen to DNT argument is a good peacetime approach. We appreciate your thoughts👍
But, we are in a situation where some bigwigs who have financial capabilities want to reclaim control over caste. They are desperate to unearth any logical or theoretical point to confuse the masses. DNT is one such logical and palatable point on paper. Beyond that, DNT has no place in Constitution and at present it is not even in it's zygotic form to ensure political reservation sought by tribes.
So the present practical approach should be to zero on ST status and move on.
Deliberations and Discussions can be kept alive but the core ideology should be fixed at the earliest.
