Nehru had said, ‘I want to see India as a first class country in every respect. The time we encourage second class, we will be defeated at the same time. Pandit Nehru had said that the only way to help the backward groups is to give them good opportunities for education. But if we move towards reservation on the basis of sect and caste, then we will lose the deserving people and move forward second rate and third rate. When this letter of Nehru was forwarded by Sushil Kumar Modi, a ruckus started and after that many MPs said in their speech that why Nehru has been held responsible for every mistake on the part of BJP.
