Bangalore: Dubbing the Ranganath Mishra Commission report as a "curse", the BJP today said it deserved to be "thrown into a dust-bin" and vowed to protect the rights of backward classes at a huge convention here.
Senior BJP leaders said the party would hold a massive agitation if the UPA government implemented the commission's recommendations.
Attacking the "votebank and electoral politics" of the Congress, BJP President Nitin Gadkari told the party- organised convention of backward classes on the sprawling Palace grounds that the party will not accept the report "at any cost".
Stating that the report, if implemented, would cut into the reservation of OBCs, he said, "The BJP will oppose it with all its might."
Ranganath Commission formed after the Sachar Committee Report was handed over to the Prime Minister has recommended 10 per cent reservation for Muslims and five per cent for other minorities in government jobs and favoured Scheduled Caste status for Dalits in all religions.
Among a host of recommendations, the Commission recommends delinking of Scheduled Caste status from religion and abrogation of the 1950 Scheduled Caste Order which "still excludes Muslims, Christians, Jains and Parsis from the SC net."
The Order originally restricted the SC status to Hindus only but was later opened it to Buddhists and Sikhs.
With regard to quota, the Commission says that 10 per cent should be reserved for Muslims and five per cent for other minorities in central and state government jobs in all cadre and grades.
It added that in case of non-availability of Muslims to fill the 10 per cent earmarked seats, these may be made available to other minorities but in "no case" shall any seat within the recommended 15 per cent shall be given to anybody from the majority community.
