Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray to approach SC again on Maratha quota row
Calling the stay top court’s ruling to put an interim stay on the implementation of the Maratha quota as unexpected, Thackeray assured that the reservation issue will be raised again. He further urged the public to not hold protests in the state.
Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray promised that the state will raise the matter of Maratha reservation before the Supreme Court again, three days after the apex court stayed the implementation of Maratha quota.
“The Maratha quota bill was unanimously passed by the state legislature and the legal team hired by the previous BJP-led state government was arguing in the apex court,” he said.
“The government is firmly with the cause of justice to Maratha community and is working on how to proceed ahead. I have spoken to Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis who is in Bihar now and he has assured the BJP’s complete support,” he further said.
Thackeray also appealed to Maratha organisations to refrain from holding protests and demonstrations during the pandemic.
