Taking a jibe at Rajat Sharma’s tweet, senior journalist Dilip Mandal wrote in his tweet, “A small caste, Rajat Sharma, the four largest castes of North India – Jatav, Yadav, Kurmi and Kushwaha does not have a single cabinet minister. Gujjars and Meenas are also big castes. By making them a minister of state, he is putting a rattle on their hands. Whereas your lower castes, with 3% of the population, occupy one-third posts in the cabinet.”

A user named Ujjwal Anand took a jibe at Rajat Sharma and wrote, “It is these who can identify the small caste even among the castes, they expose the smallest thinking of our society. How small is your thought.”

Another user wrote in his tweet, “No caste is small or big! In free India everyone has the right to live with dignity and freedom. Small is your thinking, make it big, life will become easier.
