Patels reflect Indian soecity The opinion article Caste system no longer reflects the realities of Indian economics (August 31) was interesting and timely. Agitation over such an issue underlines how backward Indian society is
For the Narendra Modi-led BJP government, this issue has created a major headache, as it cannot afford to alienate a powerful community. Yet it’s hard to support them, because that would anger other backward communities.

In such a situation, the better option for the government would be to wait for the movement to lose steam with time.
