This was after the Opposition had given the Narendra Modi government little grief on the economic quota, helping its passage in Parliament within a couple of days. Nayak now plans to appeal on the premise that with the enactment of the Constitution (103rd Amendment) Act, the economic quota is “complete or over”. He further pointed out that the entire legislative process surrounding the EWS quota lacked transparency. “The Handbook on Writing Cabinet Notes clearly indicates that a draft press note about the Cabinet decision is an essential annexure to the Cabinet Note itself. The lack of a formal press note about the 10 per cent quota proposal after it passed muster with the Union Cabinet is perplexing, to say the least,” Nayak said.
