Politics has become a tool for fetching personal gains, which has resulted in making it a 'bad' affair. It needs to be changed and the original purpose of politics should be restored.

This was stated by former union minister and Ambala MLA Vinod Sharma during his tour of the rural belt of the district on Saturday. Lauding the efforts of chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, he said, "The CM is seeing everyone at the same level and his decision to extend 10% reservation to financially weaker section is praiseworthy."

He said according to this reservation policy, financially weaker sections from general category -- Brahmin, Vaishya, Aggarwal, Punjabi and Rajput -- can avail of the benefits, but one has get the certificate made to claim benefits under it.

Addressing a public gathering at Ram Gopal colony, he said education and awareness among people should ensure that the deserving candidate do not lag behind in availing the benefits and can claim their due in admission to educational institutions as well as jobs.

He toured Balamb, Meham, Farmana Khas and Bahu Akbarpur colony in a series of public meeting on the second day of the tour of Rohtak assembly constituency. Sharma has planned to cover all the 90 assembly constituencies to spread the message of the chief minister regarding the benefits of 10% reservation to deserving persons of general category.
