Maharashtra reservation body threatens Manipur-like situation if quotas denied
The Maharashtra reservation body threatens a Manipur-like situation if quotas are denied
The umbrella organization for the Maratha community issued a warning to the BJP-led Maharashtra government on Monday: "If it does not want to turn Maharashtra into a Manipur, then it should immediately resolve the perennial Maratha reservation issue as early as possible."
On Monday, the All Indian Maratha Mahasangh convened a conference in Nagpur where it was decided to campaign for Maratha reservation.
Maratha Mahasangh leader Dilip Jagtap asserted that announcing reservations for the Marathas should be simple given that the BJP controls both the state and federal governments.
Jagtap remarked, "quota to the Maratha community should be given, but if they want to lift the 50% restriction on the quota, they can do that.
"The Maratha community predominates in various regions of the state. However, it has a developing social and economic system. Our leader Manoj Garange Patil has been on a 12-day hunger strike, but no actual solution has been announced. His health is getting worse. Jagtap warned that the state government would be held accountable if anything happened to his life.
The OBC group, on the other hand, became more concerned when Marathas were mentioned as belonging to the OBC category. Devendra Fadnavis, the deputy chief minister, made it clear on Monday that the government wouldn't treat the OBC communities unfairly.
