A one-day special session of the state legislature was called today to provide reservation to the Maratha community. The Maharashtra Assembly has passed the Maratha Reservation Bill. In this bill, a provision has been made to give 10 per cent reservation to the Maratha community in education and jobs.

During the discussion on the bill, CM Eknath Shinde asked whether it was OBC brothers or any other community. We have decided to give educational and job reservations to the Maratha community without tampering with anyone’s reservation. No party opposed this bill.

The Eknath Shinde-led government has prepared a draft for this. Based on this, it is recommended that social and educational reservations be given to the Maratha community.

The State Backward Classes Commission report will be presented in the cabinet meeting this morning before the commencement of the House proceedings, and the cabinet will recommend what percentage of reservation should be given to the Maratha community.

The Gaikwad Commission had recommended 12 per cent reservation in education and 13 per cent in government services. Since this is the first session of the new year, the session will start with Governor Ramesh Bais’s address. The State Backward Classes Commission report will be presented in the House. Earlier, the Gaikwad Commission report, along with its recommendations, was completely accepted by both Houses.

In this draft, those shortcomings have been removed based on the Supreme Court’s rejection of the Maratha reservation. Reservation will be given to the Maratha community without harming the reservation of OBC or other communities. Maharashtra Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis has said that whether Manoj Jarange accepts the reservation our government gave, Marathas will get it.

Manoj Jarange Appealed To Maratha MLAs To Support

Manoj Jarange Patil, agitating for the Maratha reservation, appealed to the Maratha MLAs to unanimously support the reservation. If Maratha MLAs themselves do not raise their voice for reservation, they will be considered anti-Maratha. He said that relatives should also be mentioned in the reservation. If the government does not agree, a new movement will be started again.
