Maratha Reservation Dispute Sparks Tensions within Maharashtra’s Ruling Parties

Nashik Minister's Bold Response to OBC Reservation Standoff

Nashik | December 12, 2023 : In a recent development in Maharashtra’s political landscape, State Food and Civil Supplies Minister Chhagan Bhujbal has boldly responded to the growing tension over the Maratha reservation issue. Bhujbal, expressing his opposition to providing reservation to the Maratha community from the OBC category, has demanded the dismissal of the Shinde Committee. The clash of opinions came to the forefront when Revenue Minister Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil suggested that the Chief Minister consider a different stance on the matter, leading to Bhujbal’s clear and assertive position.

The state has been witnessing a surge in discussions surrounding the Maratha reservation, with Bhujbal facing opposition to his stance from various quarters. The disagreement further escalated as Bhujbal called for the removal of the Shinde Committee, prompting Vikhe Patil to urge the Chief Minister to reconsider his position. The evident conflict within the ruling parties hints at a deeper disagreement over the contentious issue of Maratha reservation.

When questioned about Vikhe Patil’s statements, Bhujbal responded by stating, “Vikhe is our friend. I am ready to resign whenever needed.” Bhujbal emphasized that the matter was resolved after conveying his position to their leader. However, the underlying tensions between Chhagan Bhujbal and Vikhe Patil, both wielding significant power, continue to intensify as the debate over Maratha and OBC reservation unfolds.

The political saga takes an intriguing turn as Bhujbal suggests that the chief minister should receive a message from the deputy chief minister. The unfolding accusations and power play between Bhujbal and Vikhe Patil could shape the course of this dispute in the days to come.

Amidst this political turmoil, Maharashtra faces the aftermath of unseasonal rains, causing distress to farmers across the state, including Nashik. When questioned about his delayed visit to the constituency, Bhujbal pointedly targeted Manoj Jarange Patil. Bhujbal claimed he refrained from visiting due to time constraints and added a jab, stating, “I avoided going because of the village ban,” thereby fueling additional tension within the political landscape. The repercussions of these developments remain uncertain, casting a shadow over the future of Maratha reservations and the stability of Maharashtra’s ruling coalition.
