New Delhi, Jan 10 (IANS) Union Minister and Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) chief Ram Vilas Paswan on Thursday said the decision to provide 10 per cent reservation in jobs and education to upper castes will help the NDA in the upcoming Lok Sabha election.

Paswan told the media that providing quota to the economically weaker section from the upper castes was “a historic step” by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“People are happy because of the quota. If people are happy, there will be (electoral) benefit,” he said.

Paswan said the Supreme Court had struck down a similar move in 1990s by the P.V. Narasimha Rao government saying there was no provision for reservation on economic status and asked for Constitutional amendments.

“Now, there has been an Constitutional amendment. I do not think the Supreme Court will object to it,” he said.
