Congress-NCP misguiding people: Nadda

Nandurbar: BJP working president JP Nadda on Monday said that the Congress and its alliance partner NCP are misguiding people on reservation.

“This Congress and NCP people who are in jail and some are on bail, some are under ED investigation, these people are misguiding the people and tribal that reservations will be taken back from them. I am assuring you all reservations will be with you. No one can take it, the people of Congress and NCP are on bail and in jail so don’t believe them,” he said during an election rally here. The Maharashtra Assembly had, on November 30 last year passed the Maratha Reservation Bill which extended 16 per cent reservation in educational institutions and government jobs to the Maratha community.

Case so far: The Bombay HC, had on June 27, directed to cap the reservation for the community at 12 per cent for admission in educational institutions and 13 per cent for government jobs.
