Now, Brahmin community demands reservation in Maharashtra

The Brahmin organisation has demanded ₹5,000 pension for those who hold their religious duties


After 'Maratha reservation' gained popularity and focus in Maharashtra, the Brahmin community from the state has come forward to demand their quota and reservation. As per reports, a Brahmin organisation has decided to protest at Azad Maidan on January 22 with their various demands. 

Vishwajeet Deshpande, coordinator of the Brahmin organisation, in a press note, informed that the 10 per cent reservation granted by the Parliament will be challenged in the courts. Hence, keeping the same in mind, the brahmin community also requires a reservation, separately.
