Public opinion does not matter in current political situation. UPA is following dictatorship in the garb of democracy.
When UPA does not care for the Supreme Court orders or President’s opinion then how does public opinion matters? What happened to SC's order on demolition of unauthorised buildings in Delhi? What happened on OoP bill? What happened on AIIMS doctors’ salaries for the strike period? What happened when SC declared illegal dissolution of Bihar assembly? What happened when Jharkhand governor could not see the difference between 41 and 38 and SC intervened?
The issue of reservation is a gift of Congress party to the nation like the Kashmir issue and these issues will divide the nation on caste and religious line.
