Rajasthan Yadav's pass resolution seeking increase in OBC quota

Jaipur: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav yesterday addressed Rashtriya Yadav Mahasabha in Jaipur and tried to woo the community in the wake of Bihar Assembly elections. In the function, All India Yadav Mahasabha (AIYM) passed a resolution seeking an increase in the OBC quota proportionate to the population of castes included in the category.

The resolution was significantly passed in presence of top Yadav politicians, including Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav and Union minister Rao Indrajit Singh, representing rival political ideologies.

It was passed at AIYM's annual convention in Jaipur and demanded 27% reservation for OBCs in the 33% quota for women.

The resolution sought single posts under the reservation ambit, increase in 27% OBC quota and reiterated long pending demand for Ahir regiment in the Army.

Recently, the BJP disowned RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat's statement demanding review of the reservation policy.

But BJP's opponents have made it a major issue in poll-bound Bihar, where caste plays a major role electorally.

Recently this week, the Rajasthan assembly passed a bill granting 14% quota to economically and five percent to specially backwards communities. This has taken the quota in the state to 68% despite 50% limit.

Backing the resolution, Akhilesh said the community should be kindhearted and inclusive in view of current circumstances.

"We cannot afford to fight for our rights like those demonstrating on streets," he said. "Demonstrations are happening everywhere and we cannot match them." 

Emphasizing on the importance of the education, Akhilesh asked youth to concentrate on studies to cope up with the growing competitiveness in the age of privatization.
