Maharashtra CM to speak to CM Shivraj over elections

Mumbai: The Supreme Court has issued a similar order in the case of Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh over holding local body elections without the Other Backward Classes (OBC) quota. Subsequently, on Wednesday, it was decided in the Maharashtra state cabinet that CM Uddhav Thackeray would hold discussions with Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to find a way out.

Days after passing a similar order for Maharashtra, the Supreme Court on Tuesday had expressed concern that over 23,000 local bodies in Madhya Pradesh had been functioning without elected representatives for more than two years and directed the State Election Commission (SEC) to notify the elections within two weeks.

Sources in the government said that the OBC quota issue was raised by the ministers in the cabinet meeting. "Since the Supreme Court has given similar orders in the case of Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, we urged the Chief Minister to speak to the CM of Madhya Pradesh. Sources said one of the options that can be considered is to file a review petition before the Supreme Court, but such a decision can be taken only after discussions with CM Chouhan.''
