As the Bhartiya Janata Party government has approved 10 per cent reservation for economically weaker Upper caste people in Government Jobs and Education sector, several heated arguments and counter-arguments came across. The quota bill was passed in Lok Sabha on Tuesday. Ramdas Athawale found a creative way to show his support for both the bill and the BJP government.
The Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment tried his hand at stand-up comedy in the Parliament and recited his poem on the quota Bill in the Lok Sabha, which included digs at Rahul Gandhi and the Congress. The poem also had a declaration that the Narendra Modi administration would return to power in 2019.

However, Athawale has been known for his mini-poetry session in Parliament. The president of the Republican Party of India is known for his delivering speeches in a sing-song manner and his penchant for rhymes.
