As netizens pointed out how the caste system was a bigger concern, and how reservation was important so that a ‘cobbler’s son doesn’t become a cobbler,’  Bedi said that providing education to the poor was more important. She wondered how long the reservations would continue claiming ‘affirmative opportunity’ was already used for 3-4 generations.
