Adv. Gunaratna Sadavarte accuses CM Fadnavis of influencing Bombay HC's decision on Maratha reservation

Advocate Sadavarte is the main petitioner against Maratha reservation provided by Maharashtra government and he alleged that CM Devendra Fadnavis has influenced the Bombay HC's decision


After Bombay High Court upheld Maharashtra government’s decision to provide reservation to Maratha community, Advocate Gunaratna Sadavarte on Thursday expressed his disappointment with the same saying that the verdict is “unconstitutional”. 

Advocate Sadavaret said that this decision is against the ideologies of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar. Sadavarte is the main petitioner who challenged the Maratha reservation passed by the state government. 

Sadavarte further alleged that there is an influence of Maharashtra government and Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on the verdict carried out by the HC favouring Maratha reservation. 

The decision carried out by Justices Ranjit More and Bharti Dangre will provide less space for jobs and education for people from general category. The decision is unconstitutional and is not acceptable to me. I will appeal in the Supreme Court against the same,” Sadavarte asserted.
