On Wednesday,Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray requested the Centre 'with folded hands' to show the same urgency as it did in the case of Article 370 and some other matters while terming the Supreme Court's decision to strike down reservation for the Maratha community in Maharashtra as unfortunate.In a statement after the apex court verdict, Thackeray said, 'With folded hands, we request the prime minister and the president to take an immediate decision on Maratha quota.' The decision to give reservation to the community had been taken unanimously by both houses of the Maharashtra legislature and was based on the Gaikwad commission's recommendations, but the apex court nullified it on the ground that the state has no right to offer such quota, he said while the SC, quashing the quota law, held that there were no exceptional circumstances to justify breach of the 50 per cent reservation cap set by the 1992 Mandal verdict. Opposition party BJP president Chandrakant Patil in Pune told reporters that "It is a complete failure of the state government. It failed to convince the SC on why it was important to breach the 50 per cent ceiling on quota under extraordinary circumstances in the state with regard to the Maratha community,".While Union Minister of State for Social Justice Ramdas Athawale said "I am going to write to Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting reservations for members of Maratha and other Kshatriya communities like Jats, Rajputs and Reddys who have income of up to Rs 8 lakh,the Centre has already given 10 per cent reservation to the economically weaker section, taking the total quota to 59.90 per cent. It was possible to award 10-12 per cent reservation to Marathas,".
