Should caste quotas in education and jobs be the primary consideration in electing national and state Govts.?

The population of India in 1947 right after the partition / Independence was 33 crore (330 million), which currently in 2017 (only 70 years after India's independence) has become four-fold at 132 crore (1,320 million or 1.32 billion), thus adding three times the number of people to 1947 population.
 
Naturally, the huge rise in the population is behind people in all communities and castes in India now facing more poverty, hunger, malnutrition, lack of space and water, etc. In addition, there is also the rapid depletion of natural resources (including minerals, rivers, lakes, trees and forests), deterioration of the environment and a decline and disappearance of the natural flora and fauna due to unprecedented growth in the  number of people. More on this from "India and the parliamentary democracy",

To the following question / comment  (in Italics and red) by Rashmun on the issue of overpopulation in India (in http://such.forumotion.com/t45066-ny-times-india-s-economic-woes-are-piercing-namo-s-aura-of-invincibility) , "your 'growing population' argument falls apart if we consider that China has about the same population as India while it is rapidly outpacing India in economic development even though it was less developed than India at the time of Indian independence. Now, admittedly, China has more land area, but note that western China is largely uninhabited due to mountainous and inhospitable terrain. 90-95% of the Chinese live in Eastern China." ,

I am reproducing my response there (in http://such.forumotion.com/t45066-ny-times-india-s-economic-woes-are-piercing-namo-s-aura-of-invincibility) as the following.


Even though India and China currently have similar populations (1.3 - 1.4 billion people each),the area of China (9.6 million sq km) being nearly 3 times that of India (3.3 sq km) results in one-third the population density in China as compared to India, as well as the Chinese citizens on per capita basis having 3 times the natural resources (land, water and other things) than Indian citizens. Hence, the overpopulation has greater adverse consequences in India.

Furthermore, most of Western China as thinly populated does not compensate for the huge land difference between India and China (India in land is just one-third of China). In addition, Rajasthan also in the west of India is very thinly populated due to desert like conditions. Also, the desert-like conditions for living as human habitat, such as in Western China, still have plenty of natural resources (minerals etc.) for use by the entire population thus contributing enormously to that country's economy.

Finally, while India has the similar sized population now as China (1.3 - 1.4 billion people), India's enormous population rise in the past 70 years, without any checks and bounds on population growth, outpaced all its economic gains, unlike China which had already (many decades ago) implemented the measures to limit its population growth and thus not let its population overtake the economic gains.

If Monomaniacs and the British never entered India and Indira's Soviet-style socialism wasn't implemented, India would have been economically ahead of China today. Unfortunately, Sickular politicians & economists try to hide this from the common man.
