Maratha Quota Leader Ends Protest, State Govt Accepts Demands

Leader of the Maratha quota protests Manoj Jarange Patil called off his demonstration today after the Maharashtra government complied with all his requests. Patil was sitting on a hunger strike since Friday in Mumbai to demand that the Other Backward Classes (OBC) community be given preference in employment and education. Chief Minister Eknath Shinde was also present at the protest site.

Patil demanded that all Marathas receive Kunbi certificates, that education be free for all students from kindergarten through graduate school, and that Marathas be given preference when applying for government jobs.

According to him, 37 lakh Kunbi certificates have been issued thus far, and that figure will rise to 50 lakh. Other Backward Classes are referred to as kunbi (OBC).

The Supreme Court ruled on May 5, 2021, that reservations for the Maratha community in colleges, universities, and employment were unconstitutional. The court stated that there was no justification for going beyond 50% reservation when granting Maratha reservations.
