This is completely wrong and unconstitutional ! The recent orders of the Rajasthan government putting a condition that only people with VIII standard can contest for the Panchayat and with Matriculation for Zilla Parishads is completely wrong, unconstitutional and intended to keep away the marginalised people like SC/ST, Backward class, women etc.
Both the Congress and BJP Governments utterly failed to improve the literacy. And the BJP government is penalising the innocent people for the same.
This order should be immediately scrapped.
