PM Modi's 'masterstroke' Bill granting 10 per cent quota for economically weak clears Parliament test

The Rajya Sabha on Wednesday cleared a Bill which paved the way for 10 per cent quota in jobs and education for people from general category who belong to economically weaker sections. The Bill, which is being seen as PM Narendra Modi's 'masterstroke' just a few months ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha election, received 165 votes in favour, while seven members of the Upper House voted against it after a marathon over 10-hour debate.
