AURANGABAD: Other backward class (OBC) leaders and members of the Bhatkya Vimukta Jaati (nomadic and denotified tribes) coordinating committee on Monday launched an apolitical outfit to campaign against the communal and anti-reservation parties.
“Activists from various OBC and tribal communities across the state have come together to form ‘OBC, Bhatky Vimukta Samanway Samiti Maharashtra’, who will work for the betterment of members of our community,” Rajaram Patil and Chandrakant Bawkar, leaders of Samiti, told reporters following a meeting here on Monday.
“We were inspired by the efforts of CBO leaders like the late Gopinath Munde and Chhagan Bhujbal to work together for CBO and tribal rights. In addition, we unanimously declared a manifesto to launch various campaigns such as women’s reservation in Lok Sabha and state assemblies modeled on civic bodies, ”they said.
Emphasizing that various political parties and organizations were engaged in caste-based politics, Patil said: “We have decided to boycott the political groups that are against the reservation.
The Samiti would continue with its resolution for a separate budget for CBOs and tribal people based on their proportion of population. Members of the CBO also demanded that the state and the Center prioritize resolving the backlog of members of their community in government jobs. “They should also implement 52% reservation standards in the cooperative and private sector,” they said.
OBC leaders opposed the removal of morchas by different communities while the reservation issue was pending in court. “This is nothing more than an attempt to put pressure on justice. These people should be tried for contempt of court and the state government should take an initiative in this direction, ”they said.
Other leaders present at the meeting included Tukaram Lad, JJ Tandale, Shankar Mahajan, Subhash Maher, Mahadev Andhale, Aminbhai Jamgaonkar, Bhagwansingh Dobhal, KR Girhe, TS Chavan and Tukaram Shinde.
