The government said that creating more jobs, not reservation, is needed for the uplift of weaker sections of society.

"I am not a great votary of reservation. I don't believe reservation is the answer for the future," Minority Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid said here at a function organised by industry body Confederation of Indian Industry.

The minister, who is also holding the charge of the Corporate Affairs Ministry, said that empowerment and capacity building are the answers and not reservation.

The previous UPA government had asked the private sector to go for affirmative action in giving jobs to weaker sections as part of corporate social responsibility (CSR).

Khurshid pointed out that the country can achieve equality effectively with affirmative action as it is a more smooth process, is accommodative and goes farther than reservations.
