Cong to move no-confidence motion against CM on Maratha quota

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

Taking an aggressive stand against the BJP-led government on the issue of Maratha quota, today said it will move a no-confidence motion against Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis for "insulting" the sentiments of the community.

leader and former chief minister today demanded Fadnavis's resignation. He quoted the High order of October 13 which said the government had sought time as it was collecting further data to file an additional affidavit, which led to adjournment of the hearing of petitions on Maratha reservations beyond vacation.



The HC has stayed the previous government's ordinance granting reservations to Marathas, and is hearing petitions challenging the ordinance.

Rane said contrary to what the state counsel told the HC, Fadnavis, on the same day, had told reporters that the state had not sought more time to file affidavit.

Fadnavis government had not filed any affidavit since it came to power in October 2014, Rane alleged, adding "the government does not intend to give the Maratha community its rightful reservations. It has no concern for the grievances raised by the community through its silent marches."

The CM had thus hurt the sentiments of the community, he said.

"We will move a no-confidence motion against Fadnavis during the winter session and a privilege motion in the Legislative Council," Rane said, adding that would seek support of all parties barring and Shiv Sena for the motion.
