Mumbai: BJP is looking aggressive against the cancellation of OBC reservation in the local body elections in Maharashtra. On June 26, BJP will organize a movement in the entire state. In the BJP executive meeting held in Mumbai on Thursday, former Chief Minister and Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis also bluntly It has been said that if the proposed five Zilla Parishad and Panchayat Samiti elections are not pushed forward, then BJP will field only OBC face in each seat. It is pertinent to mention that the Supreme Court in March this year after taking note of the reservation for Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes (OBCs) had ordered that reservation in local bodies in Maharashtra cannot exceed 50 per cent of the total seats. .
The Uddhav Thackeray-led government of Maharashtra has failed to make a strong argument in the Supreme Court, which has led to the cancellation of political reservation for OBCs. Fadnavis said that the state government should constitute a Backward Classes Commission and submit the data for OBC reservation. Fadnavis said that if the government needs our help, then they are ready to do it. But perhaps this government had no intention of giving reservation to OBCs.
what is the whole matter
According to the information, the Supreme Court had struck down Article 12 of the District Council Act of the Government of Maharashtra. The court had clarified that reservations have been fixed according to the population, but even then the reservation cannot be given more than 50 percent.
The Supreme Court had also clearly ordered that reservation cannot be given to OBCs more than 27%. Following this constitutional limit, elections should be conducted in the Zilla Parishad. After the Supreme Court’s decision to cancel the reservation, Maharashtra filed a review petition in the court, but the court has also canceled it.
