Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar has suggested that Udyanraje Bhosale and Chhatrapati Sambhajiraje should resolve the issue of Maratha reservation with the help of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government at the centre. 

BJP leaders Udyanraje Bhosale and Chhatrapati Sambhajiraje, both are from the family of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and are members of the Rajya Sabha. Pawar targeted them saying that they should get the Maratha reservation issue resolved through BJP. 

“Both the leaders should put pressure on the BJP government at the centre. They can do this as both of them were elected to Rajya Sabha because of BJP. If there is a need to agitate, both of them should also lead the same,” Pawar said. 

Meanwhile, Sambhajiraje informed that he was the first member of Parliament to raise the issue of Maratha reservation. He has also demanded that all government should be postponed until the final verdict on the Maratha reservation issue is out. 

NCP MP Supriya Sule has also praised Sambhajiraje for raising the Maratha reservation issue in the Parliament. Moreover, Udyanraje Bhosale has also threatened to resign from his post as an MP over the issue of Maratha reservation. Bhosale had joined the BJP after quitting NCP last year. 

Pawar’s remarks come after the Maratha outfits in Maharashtra have warned that they will come out on streets to press their demands. The Maratha community has called for statewide ‘bandh’ in Maharashtra on October 10 if their demands are not met.
