Maharashtra govt should not tamper with texisting reservations, says Pawar
NCP president Sharad Pawar today said the Maharashtra government should not tamper with the existing reservations while deciding on the Maratha community's demand for quota.
The former Union minister was speaking at a book release function here. "The reservation for SC, ST and OBC (Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Class) should not be touched," he said, speaking at a book release here. "The government is not taking any decision, is only holding talks.
So it seems as if the government wants the agitation (of pro-quota Maratha organisations) to continue," the veteran leader said. The politically influential Maratha community is agitating for the last two weeks for reservation in jobs and education.
