Mumbai Congress demands reservation for North Indian backward communities in Maharastra

The Mumbai Congress headed by Sanjay Nirupam has demanded reservations in education and employment for migrants from North India belonging to different backward classes living in Mumbai.

According to the reports, Sanjay Nirupam, president of the Mumbai Congress Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Monday and submitted a three-point memorandum and appealed for reservations in the state for SCs, STs and OBCs from North Indian. He said that these people are being given reservations in other parts of the country but not in Maharastra.

“People belonging to multiple castes have migrated from north India to Mumbai in search of employment. These include people from more than 30 different castes like Vishwakarma, Kurmi, Koiri, Pal, Kanojia, Gupta, Chaurasia, Maurya and Rajbhar who have made Maharashtra their homes for over two-three generations now”, Sanjay Nirupam said.

He further said that these people are yet to be recognised as ‘backward’ and denying reservation to them will be a violation of their fundamental rights. He added that the country should have uniform rules which can be implemented in all states.

“The government should introduce a new system in place wherein only a domicile certificate shall be considered as the mandatory criteria for allotting a caste certificate as opposed to the present complicated system in which old records and proofs are demanded,” Nirupam added.

Reportedly, CM Fadnavis was patient enough to listen to the demands and promised to take appropriate action in the matter as these issues fall under the Central government and had legal ramifications.

The memorandum was signed by 25 prominent members of various North Indian OBC communities in the state backing the demands.
