The dissenting judgment versus the razing of equality

  • Published
    22nd Nov, 2022

Context:

The dissenting judgment in the recent Supreme Court’s verdict on economically weaker sections case imparts strength to fight for the promise of equality forming the core of the Constitution.

Turning intersectionality on its head

  • Concept of intersectionality: It is a lens for seeing how various forms of inequalities operate together and exacerbate each other. It is contrary to looking at inequalities in isolation.
  • Exclusion of SC and ST communities: It is like denying an ‘Adivasi’ person the opportunities for the EWS, just because he/she is having any other existing reservations.
  • Dissenting Judgment: Reservations based on caste are not privileges or benefits, but reparative measures. Using it as a ground to deny EWS reservation amount to discrimination.
