In recent developments, Public Works Minister Ashok Chavan announced that the Chief Secretary will review the pending recruitment process for the Social and Educational Backward Classes (SEBC) category from next Monday.

He gave this information while interacting with journalists after the meeting of the Cabinet Sub-Committee on Maratha Reservation held at Sahyadri Guest House. In view of the occasion, Ashok Chavan said that the Supreme Court has protected the appointments made till September 9, 2020. However, selection and appointment are two factors in the recruitment process due to which the Chief Secretary will hold prompt meetings with the Secretaries of the concerned departments to review both the completed and incomplete recruitment processes. Moreover, the state government is in favour of giving justice to the candidates affected by the Supreme Court adjournment and further decisions will be taken regarding the same after the report by the Chief Secretary.

Committee for analysis of results

Chavan further stated that a six- or seven-member committee would be appointed in the next two days under the chairmanship of a retired judge to conduct a detailed analysis of the Supreme Court's more than 550-page judgment on the Maratha reservation through jurists. The committee will carefully study the decision and make its findings as well as make recommendations to the state government on the legal options available. The report of this committee is expected to be received in 15 days. The decision regarding the reconsideration petition will be taken as per the recommendation of the committee, said Ashok Chavan.

Meanwhile, last week, Chavan accused the opposition of trying to incite the Maratha community after the Supreme Court quashed the 2018 state law giving reservation in government jobs and education to the social group. Without naming the BJP, the Congress leader, who heads a sub-committee on Maratha reservation, said the opposition was indulging in "the West Bengal-like political game" which would only endanger the lives of common people in the state.
