Mumbai's corona control model is being praised: Uddhav Thackeray

Mumbai: The Supreme Court delivered its verdict on the Maratha reservation issue on May 5 (Wednesday). In fact, the Maratha reservation was canceled by the Supreme Court and at the same time, the Recommendation of the Gaikwad Committee was not accepted by the Supreme Court. In fact, on the basis of this recommendation, the Maratha community was considered socially and educationally backward and on the basis of this recommendation, Devendra Fadnavis's government gave 16 percent reservation in education and jobs to the Maratha community. The Supreme Court yesterday refused to re-visit the verdict on Indira Sahni's case. In this judgment of 1992, the Supreme Court had fixed the maximum limit for a reservation to 50 percent.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court in its statement said, "No state government can declare a particular caste as backward, it can only recommend it to the President.'' Now, amidst all this, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray interacted with the people yesterday on this issue and on the issue related to corona. Speaking on the issue of Maratha reservation during the interaction, Uddhav Thackeray said, "The Supreme Court's decision is disappointing. We unanimously decided to make Maratha reservation from the State. The Supreme Court quashed it. We successfully took up this issue in the High Court. The same lawyers who had defended the state government and the Maratha community in the high court were also defending the Supreme Court. But today was a disappointing day. There has been a disappointment, but the fight is not over. He said he will write to the Prime Minister and the President on the issue.'' Moreover, he said, "First of all, I would like to thank the Maratha community for not holding the law and order after the decision and cooperating with the administration. The Supreme Court also rejected the Gaikwad Commission. What is the way now? There is a way. Uddhav Thackeray further said that the battle is not over. The Supreme Court said it is not the right of the state government to take this decision. It is the power of the Central Government.”

At the same time, referring to corona, he said, "The Supreme Court today praised the Mumbai model in controlling the covid. This success belongs to the people and the administration. The infection of corona in the state is gradually decreasing. But in some districts, the spread of corona is rapidly taking place. Experts have predicted a third wave of corona in the country. There is a need to be vigilant against the third wave of the corona. Every effort is being made to improve health facilities. I will not accuse the Centre about the vaccine but would say that as we get the vaccine, we will speed up vaccination.''
