Gujarat to study Maharashtra quota decision and decide on Patidars: Rupani

Ahmedabad: Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani on Monday said the state government had sought details from its Maharashtra counterparts about its decision to grant reservation benefits to the Maratha community to find out if the Patidar community could be given a quota here.

The state government would examine in detail the Maharashtra survey reports

Rupani, who was on an official visit to Kutch, told reporters there the Gujarat government had asked for the survey reports on the basis of which Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis administration had decided on reservation for the OBC Maratha community in the neighbouring state.

“The state government would examine in detail the Maharashtra survey reports and related data and then decide on reservation for the Patidars in Gujarat,” the Chief Minister said.

Taking a cue from the development, young Patidar agitation spearhead Hardik Patel has asked why Gujarat could not give reservations to the Patidars (Patels) if the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Maharashtra could do so.
