Submitted detailed representation to Hon'ble Union Law Minister Shri @rsprasad ji on Large scale misuse of SC Status for Political Benefits in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

Following Recommendations have been made to the Ministry: (1/n)
1. Amendment to The Representation of People Act, 1951: By giving wide discretionary powers to Returning Officers to scrutinize/accept or reject caste certificates produced by the contestants instead of merely accepting caste certificates produced by the contestants. (2/n)
2. To pass a new legislation clearly defining:
Who is a Hindu, Christian & Muslim and when will a Hindu be considered to have become a Christian/Muslim and vice-versa. (3/n)
Judicial pronouncements such as: "Name&Religion are not linked", "Name need not be changed on converting from one religion to another", "Hindu can't be considered as Christian merely because he attends Church or reads Bible"- Resulted in large-scale misuse of SC reservations(4/n)
Requested Hon'ble Minister to take our recommendations into consideration in order to safeguard the interests of genuine SCs and achieve the goal of Social Justice - The Golden Dream of makers of The Constitution India (n/n)
