New Delhi. of Odisha Naveen Patnaik Govt. in the upcoming panchayat elections by Reservation for OBC Candidates BJP leaders to give priority to Dharmendra Pradhan termed tokenism (symbolism). The BJP leader and Union Minister said that the anti-OBC face of the Odisha government is exposed by the fact that the government has not been able to implement the reservation for OBCs in local elections. He said that the government of Madhya Pradesh and the Center is soon going to file a review petition on the issue of OBC reservation in the Supreme Court and so that the OBC community of Madhya Pradesh can get the benefit of reservation in local elections. But the intention of the Odisha government is not visible to solve this issue logically.
He said that the Odisha government can approach the Supreme Court against the decision of the Odisha High Court on this issue, especially when the Odisha government’s SLP is pending on the issue of giving more than 50 percent reservation to OBCs in the Supreme Court. Dharmendra Pradhan said that the state government should tell the public why it is against OBC reservation.
Let us inform that on 22 December, the Odisha government had informed the High Court that it would withdraw the reservation notification issued for the Panchayat elections. The government admitted that the notification was ‘defective’. In fact, the court was hearing a petition challenging the October 1 notification related to the reservation of seats. The court had asked the State Election Commission (SEC) to submit an affidavit, seeking details of the reservation policy to be adopted for the elections to be held early next year.
Petitioner’s counsel Sukant Dalei said that the public prosecutor informed the court that a fresh notification for reservation of seats would be issued next Monday and the objections would be accepted till January 3. Dalei said, ‘The government will submit the final reservation list to the SEC on January 7 after hearing the objections on January 5’.
A division bench headed by Chief Justice S Muralidhar is hearing a petition filed by Birender Das. The petitioner had said that if the notification of October 1 is implemented, then the scheduled caste and scheduled tribe communities will completely lose their constitutional and statutory rights. Das said that the notification of the government is contrary to the 73rd Constitutional Amendment of 1992.
