CM expresses disappointment over Supreme Court's decision on Maratha Reservation

In a recently announced decision, the Supreme Court rejected the Maratha Reservation and this news has disappointed both the government officials and the people of Maharashtra. The apex court gave the judgement despite the protests observed in different parts of the state. 

Members from both the ruling and opposition party expressed their views regarding the judgement and authorities from the Maratha Kranti Morcha called this an ‘unfortunate’ decision for the state. On the other hand, former ruling party in the state, BJP once again slammed the MVA government and has called for discussion regarding the matter.

Expressing his thoughts, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray said that this was a disappointing verdict as the state has been fighting for the reservation for several years. While the High Court had given this a clearance, the Supreme Court has ruled out the statement, but has directed that the decision will have to be taken by the Central Government and the President. He also shared his confidence and said that Prime Minister Modi will not disrespect the same.

Requesting the same, the government will soon be communicating with the Centre and the CM has planned to send a letter thereby make an appeal with folded hands asking him to consider the matter.

Meanwhile, the opposition party, BJP has also responded to the same, and stated that the verdict given by the Supreme Court reflects Maha Vikas Aghadi's failure in convicing the apex court. Sharing his concerns, BJP state chief Chandrakant Patil, said that the MVA government has failed in this regards as the party was not able to upheld the law and has disappointed the state by not presenting the arguments properly. 

MP Chhatrapati Sambhajiraje also added that the governments, both central and state, has to work in tandem and find a solution, as this decision, in the current times, is going to help in saving lives of several people. 

Leaders have asked to file a review petition with an aim to find the right solution for the reservation. Some members from the Maratha community even called this a black day for the state. On a positive note, BJP leader Ashish Shelar extended his support and said that party will always be ready to help if the government decides to take important steps in getting the reservation.
