Maharashtra Agri Minister Supports OBC Quota Protection Amid Maratha Reservation Debate

Maharashtra Agriculture Minister Dhananjay Munde assured activists that the government will protect the OBC quota amidst Maratha reservation demands.

New Delhi , 18 June , 2024 – In a significant political development, Maharashtra Agriculture Minister Dhananjay Munde has reassured the state’s OBC community that their quota will be protected amid ongoing demands for Maratha reservation. Speaking on behalf of the government, Munde stated that the demands of the fasting activists would be brought to the forefront of the government’s agenda.

The activists, Laxman Hake and Navnath Waghmare, have been on a fast in Jalna district since June 13, demanding written assurance that the Other Backward Classes (OBC) reservation will not be compromised. Their protest comes in the wake of a recently passed bill that grants 10 percent reservation to Marathas in education and government jobs.
