NVCC seeks justice for all while implementing Maratha reservation


Nagpur: Nag Vidarbha Chamber of Commerce (NVCC), a prominent organisation of the traders from Vidarbha, has urged the State government to ensure justice is done with all the sections of the society while implementing reservations for Maratha community in post graduate medical course from the ensuing academic session of 2019-20.

NVCC has pointed out that earlier this month, the Bombay High Court as well as the Supreme Court after considering the merits of the case, had ruled that 16 per cent reservation shall not be applicable for this year’s admission in post graduate courses of medical stream.

NVCC President Hemant Gandhi has appealed to government to ensure that no section of the society is put to disadvantage, in the endeavor to introduce Maratha reservations. It is true that India is a welfare state and all the governments chalk out and implement policies for welfare of the people. However, while doing so it is the duty of the government to safeguard the interest of all citizens, he added.

NVCC Secretary Sanjay K Agrawal said that NVCC is not against reservations to needy and eligible faction of society. However, the law making body (Government) should respect the decisions of the judiciary (courts) and should desist from overruling their judgments for political millage.
