Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s government in Madhya Pradesh has received relief from the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court has ordered the holding of local body elections in the state with reservation of the OBC. At the same time, the court has clarified that the reserve must not exceed 50 percent. Previously, the high court had ordered that the elections be held without reservations from the OBC. Following this, the Shivraj government had filed a review petition with the court. The court has given its verdict on this.
The Supreme Court decision regarding Madhya Pradesh has been appreciated by many leaders in Maharashtra. Like Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra too will get justice and the upcoming elections will be held with OBC reservations, Mahavikas Aghadi government leaders said. But opposition leader Devendra Fadnavis has attacked the Mahavikas Aghadi government.
Devendra Fadnavis has criticized the Mahavikas Aghadi government for not getting permission to hold elections in Maharashtra with reservations from the OBC. He pointed out the ploy of the Maharashtra government and said: Then he formed a commission but he was not paid. He also smiled when presenting the report in the Supreme Court. The report was not signed, there was no date or data.
He further said: “The OBC political reserve in Maharashtra has been removed by the Mahavikas Aghadi government. After Maharashtra, the Supreme Court also ruled in favor of Madhya Pradesh holding elections without OBC reservations. But the Madhya Pradesh government formed a dedicated commission on the second day of the verdict. Through it, each local administration in Madhya Pradesh district generated data. They were then allowed to hold elections with the reservation of the OBC. Still, he said he.
“It just came to our attention then. The ministers kept giving speeches, they kept organizing rallies, the Chief Minister paid no attention to this. So today Madhya Pradesh got the permission and the empirical data from Maharashtra has not been prepared yet. That’s why, I think those who have responsibility in the government should resign,” Fadnavis said.
