After the backward class commission submitted its report to Maharashtra government suggesting 16 per cent reservation to Maratha community, the Other Backward Class (OBC) communities have opposed the same. The organisations have clarified that they are not against the Maratha reservation but are opposing the reservation being provided under a new category – Socially and Educationally Backward Class (SEBC). 

While talking to Mumbai Live, OBC leader Anna Shendge informed that they will challenge the implemented of Maratha reservation in the High Court. Earlier on Sunday, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis announced that Maratha community will be provided reservation under the SEBC category after the cabinet passed the bill.

Although, CM Fadnavis assured that the OBC reservation quota won’t be affected but the OBC communities have expressed their dissatisfaction regarding the same. Shendge rejected the claims made by Maharashtra government and said that they will provide reservation to the Maratha community under OBC quota only. The Chief Minister is misguiding everyone along with the Maratha community. 

The OBC leader further raised questions on Maharashtra State Backward Class Commission and the report saying that the appointed commission consists of people from the Maratha community.
