With the Supreme Court ordering cancellation of Maratha reservation and stay on political reservation of OBC quota, the politics of reservation in Maharashtra has now completely dominated. In fact, different OBC leaders of the State have started coming forward in this matter. The BJP has now announced a chakka jam across the state on June 226 against it. Yes, a meeting of BJP-affiliated OBC leaders was held at the house of leader of opposition in the Assembly Devendra Fadnavis yesterday. BJP National General Secretary and former Minister Pankaja Munde and former minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule addressed the media after the meeting. Meanwhile, Pankaja Munde has warned the Thackeray government that she will not allow elections in the state without preparing the imperial data of the OBC community. The abolition of political reservation of OBC quota is unfair to the OBC community.
At the same time, he also said, "On 26th June, BJP will agitate in 1,000 places across the state. When we were in power, we had the ability to take decisions. So, we took steps to sustain OBC reservation, brought an Ordinance. But the coalition is a lie in the intention of the Government. That is why the Ordinance relating to OBC reservation was cancelled. The state government could not place the interests of OBC society before the court and obc reservation could not be implemented." Moreover, he said, "BJP leaders will interact with the people in different parts of the state in the coming days on the issue of OBC reservation. He will also interact with leaders of various organizations related to the issue.''
Pankaja Munde further said, "OBC ministers in the government are also agitating for OBC reservation. Why do they need to agitate? They are in the Government, they need to work, decisions need to be taken. But that is not their intention. As a Minister in the State, I want to meet the Chief Minister and share with him the information I have acquired on this issue and the work i have done. I want to discuss with them and have also sought time for it.''
