“Till then the State Backward Class Commission’s report will be completed. We will submit that report to the Supreme Court. CM Thackeray will speak to the MP chief minister on steps being taken by the neighbouring state and what can be done collectively to restore the OBC quota,” he said.
The apex court on Tuesday directed the Madhya Pradesh SEC to notify the local body polls in two weeks without the OBC quota.
A similar order was passed for Maharashtra earlier.
After the SC verdict, the Madhya Pradesh chief minister said his government will file a review petition and push for holding local body elections with the OBC reservation.
The apex court, in its verdict, said until the triple test exercise, which was mentioned in a Constitution bench verdict of 2010, is completed in all respect, no reservation for the OBCs can be provisioned.
The triple condition included setting up a dedicated commission to conduct a rigorous empirical inquiry into the nature and implications of backwardness local body-wise within a state before provisioning the reservation for the OBC category.
