Chennai, Apr 19 (ANI): Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and Dravida Munnettra Kazhagam (DMK) leader, M Karunanidhi, on Saturday said that the word “creamy layer” in the Supreme Courts verdict on Other Backward Classes (OBC) reservation is “confusing”.

Karunanidhi wrote in his party mouthpiece Murasoli that the apex court verdict had stated that the Government could make a relaxation to some extent in the income limit prescribed so that sufficient number of candidates could be made available for filling the 27 per cent quota fully.

But the benefit derived from this would amount to concession, Karunanidhi said adding his party demanded reservation for OBCs as a matter of right and not as concession.

Reservation should be given to OBCs through a law and not by concession, he added. (ANI)
