On February 10, following the Supreme Court upholding 2018 amendments to the SC/ST Act, Gandhi had targeted the BJP and RSS and said their ideology to end quota. Gandhi went on to say that they never want SC/STs to progress and that they were breaking the institutional structure.
Taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, Gandhi said, "We will not allow reservation to be done away with, no matter how much Modi Ji or Mohan Bhagwat dream of it."
