The Supreme Court will give its verdict on Wednesday, May 5 in the Maratha reservation case which is attracting the attention of the entire country. The verdict will be announced in the Supreme Court’s Judgment No. 5.
Adv. Jayashree Patil-Sadavarte had challenged. The state government and Vinod Narayan Patil of Aurangabad are the defendants in this very important case which has caught the attention of the country. The case was heard before a five-member bench. The Maratha Reservation Act was passed unanimously in both the houses of the state legislature. In the Supreme Court, both the 102nd Amendment and the 50 per cent limit were effectively debated by the state government and pro-reservation private petitioners.
The Center made it clear in the Supreme Court that the rights of the states are not affected by the 102nd Amendment. Ashok Chavan, chairman of the Maratha Reservation Cabinet sub-committee, said that all the states have demanded an increase in the reservation limit to 50 per cent.
