Union Minister and senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Raosaheb Danve has attacked the Uddhav Thackeray government over the Supreme Court’s decision to stay the implementation of Maratha reservation. He said that the stay was imposed because the Maharashtra government didn’t present its case properly.

“The Supreme Court stayed the implementation on the Maratha reservation because the Maharashtra government did not present its side properly. This is a major failure of the state government and this is why the Maratha community has been agitating again,” Danve said. 

Recently, the Maratha outfits have called for a statewide ‘bandh’ in Maharashtra on October 10 to register their protest against the Uddhav Thackeray government for “failing” to legally sustain the quota for Marathas in the Supreme Court. 

The decision was taken at a round table conference organised by Maratha Arakshan Action Samiti (MAAC) in Kolhapur where they passed 15 resolutions stating their demands. Nearly 50 Maratha outfits participated in the round table conference and decided to call a statewide ‘bandh’. 

The Maratha community has been protesting against the state and central government over the interim stay imposed on Maratha quota. The Supreme Court has referred the matter to be heard by a larger bench. 

Reacting to this, Danve said that the reservation quota exceeded 50 per cent limit in Tamil Nadu as well but there was no stay by the Supreme Court because the Tamil Nadu government was prepared. 

“On the other hand, the Maharashtra government didn’t take any concrete step during the hearing for Maratha reservation. This is why the interim stay was imposed,” the BJP leader said. 

The Uddhav Thackeray government should make every effort to lift the interim stay on reservation in the next Supreme Court or else the government will have to bear the consequences, Danve said. 

The Maharashtra government has also filed an application in the Supreme Court seeking a vacation of the interim stay order on the implementation of Maratha reservation.
