Top leaders of the Congress launched an attack on the BJP and the RSS on the issue of quota in promotion.

The reactions came after SC ruling on the issue.

SC said that there is no fundamental right to claim reservation in promotion.

Congress Rahul Gandhi said the Modi government is attacking all the institutions in the country.

"The reservation is hurting the RSS and the BJP. They want to erase it. Every morning when they wake up it irritates them...

...Whatever the fantasy, the RSS/BJP live in, we will not allow it to happen", The Congress leader said.

"The issue is that the RSS and the BJP cannot live with the idea of Dalits, tribals and OBCs have reservation....

... This irritates them and they have tried to erase them", he added.

Priyanka Gandhi also attacked the BJP over the Supreme Court’s decision.

Priyanka Gandhi alleged that the ruling party was weakening the equal rights given to Dalits and tribals by the Constitution.

The Congress has slammed the BJP government in Uttarakhand for contending in the case in the apex court...

...that there was no fundamental right to claim reservation in appointments or promotions in public posts...

... and that there was no constitutional duty on the part of the state governments to provide reservations.

"Understand the BJP's bid of ending reservation -- 1. RSS people consistently make statements against reservation.

2. The BJP government of Uttarakhand makes an appeal in the Supreme Court to abolish the fundamental right to reservation.

3. Uttar Pradesh government also immediately starts tampering with the rules of reservation," Priyanka Gandhi said in a tweet.

"The BJP first tried to weaken the law against atrocities on Dalits and tribals. Now it is trying to weaken equal rights ...

....given to them by the Constitution and Babasaheb (Ambedkar)," the Congress general secretary said in a tweet.
