The Maharashtra Government has been exploring a slew of options to restore the Maratha reservation stayed by the Supreme Court.

This comes after Shivsangram Sanghatana founder Vinayak Mete demanded 13 per cent reservation for the Maratha community in the recruitment of police personnel. Moreover, the entire Maratha community has appealed to the government stating that no government servant should be recruited in the state until the issue of reservation is resolved.

This took place as the state government announced the decision to recruit police personnel after a cabinet meeting. It churned out strong reactions from the Maratha community who have been fighting for reservation in government jobs.

Vinayak Mete, speaking about the issue stated that if the state government wants to recruit police, it must do so, however, 13 per cent of the seats allotted through the reservation of the Maratha community should be singled out separately. Mete further stated that the Cabinet should finalize a decision and fill those seats with the permission of the Supreme Court.

He added that if this can be achieved then the boys and girls of the Maratha community will be included in the recruitment process, therefore, it can be asserted that this alliance government is positive about the Maratha community.

In the meeting of the state cabinet held on Wednesday, September 16, it was decided to recruit personnel for 12,528 posts in Maharashtra. This is the first time in the history of Maharashtra that such massive recruitment will take place. This will give an opportunity to the youth in the urban and rural areas of Maharashtra to join the police department.

Moreover, the Cabinet has directed the Home Department to take further action in this regard as per the advice of the General Administration Department and the Law and Justice Department on the background of the interim stay granted by the Supreme Court to the reservation of socially and educationally backward classes.
