Reservation in Private sector

Government of India Is trying hard to bring reservations in private sector.
Chandra Bhan Prasad, trying to justify reservations in the private sector by arguing that it will help companies:

It is in the culture of dalits that they are least likely to change their employment because they are so loyal to their masters.

I don't know on what basis he is saying that. Maybe because in the past the dalits who were ,unfortunately, tormented were still loyal to their tormentor. But doesn't this statement brings back to picture the unwritten commandment of how an dalit should live.
Amit Verma has correctly countered it by saying that in a competitive world profits can be increased by maximising efficiencies and that government should not force it on the corporates.
Government complains that good students leave India. If such policies are followed by them why should a student who pays high fees,cut through extreme competition remain in a country ,which does not need them.(which is being portrayed).
The Government crossed the line when they mooted the idea of reservation in Call Centers. Students from general category work in them to earn for their college. They need money to pay fees and donations,but dalits don't have to worry about these .
Chanakya has said "O wise man! Give your wealth only to the worthy and never to others. The water of the sea received by the clouds is always sweet. "
