The winter sessions have been extended for one more day in the upper house. After getting approved from both the houses, it will have to be ratified by half of the state legislatures in the country. The ten percentage reservation bill also may face legal challenges. Several opposition parties criticized Narendra Modi for waking up after four and half years of his rule. This ten percentage reservation will be in addition to the 50% reservation for the SCs, STs and OBCs in the country. This will make the total reservation in the country reach 60%.
