Maratha reservation will not be legitimised: MoS Ramdas Athawale

RPI (A) chief Ramdas Athawale attacked BJP government and said that votes are not earned by constructing temples and statues


After a petition in Bombay High Court challenged the Maratha reservation granted by Maharashtra government, Minister of State (MoS) and Republic Party of India (RPI) Athawale (A) chief Ramdas Athawale attacked the Fadnavis government and said that the reservation provided to Maratha community will not be legitimised by the court.

Ahead of the upcoming elections next year in centre and state, Athawale attacked Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and said that the votes cannot be earned by constructing temples or statues.

While speaking on the Ram Mandir issue, the RPI (A) chief said that people in large numbers want the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. However, everyone should wait for the Supreme Court to carry out the ruling on the same. Moreover, it is necessary to keep in mind that the feelings of the Muslim community shouldn’t be hurt.
