Reservation can’t be given in a hurry: CM

Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said on Tuesday that any reservation extended in a hurry to the Maratha community will not stand up in court, while the BJP ally Shiv Sena stirred the quota pot further by asking the State government to extend reservation to Dhangars and Kolis as well.
The State cannot work based on emotions if it really wants to give reservation, the CM said, terming the recent incidents of violence and suicides by Maratha youth as disturbing.
The government can any time issue an ordinance for the Maratha reservation, but that will not stand up in court. We will have to meet certain legal aspects to give reservation and the government will do everything to achieve that, Mr. Fadnavis said at a book launch in Mumbai.
Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray demanded on Monday that the government announce reservation for Marathas without waiting for the State Backward Class Commission’s report on the issue. Once the Maratha community is given reservation, others will come out on the streets and a new problem will crop up, the party mouthpiece Saamana warned in an editorial on Tuesday.
