Reservation policy should be strictly on economic and intelligence criteria and that people belonging to all castes and religions should get the benefits if it, said Shalinitai Patil, the founder of Kranti Sena party.

The reservation policy denies opportunity to quality but the party will fight election for the cause and problems of the youth, Patil told PTI.

Criticising Maharashtra Government, Patil said, "The present Congress-NCP alliance ahs no concern for the poor."

"The government should provide employment to the family members of farmers who have committed suicide," she said.

The state government has spent Rs 10,000 crores for Krishna valley project but still no water has reached the farms, she said.

Patil also demanded the withdrawal of the Atrocity Act and strong action against Bangladesh immigrants.
