Ahead of BMC elections 2022, Pankaja Munde attacks the MVA Govt over the sensitive issue of OBC Reservation
New political angles in the attack are not a new thing ahead of the elections, as Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation elections 2022 approach, the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) coalition government in the state consisting of Shiv Sena, Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) will have to face series of attacks.
 
In a recent attack, soon after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Pankaja Munde with her bad mood over neglect by the party in her nomination to the state council, hit out at Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government over the issue which has gained excessive momentum in recent times that is Other Backward Class (OBC) issue. 
 
She hit out at the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) talking about the reservation for the Other Backward Class (OBC) in local bodies. She stated that despite the state government’s formation of the State Backward Classes Commission (SBCC) it has failed to provide enough funds or manpower to collect empirical data of the Other Backward Class (OBC). 
 
“It has been a long time of 15 months but the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) coalition government has done nothing but only got dates changed seven times to provide funds to the SBCC. By these actions of the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) it is thought that it is in no mood to give reservation to the Other Backward Class (OBC) in the local bodies and simply end it,” stated Bharatiya Janata Party Pankaja Munde who is the one leader who soon after the Supreme Court had quashed the issue was in the forefront to oppose it. 
 
The agitation from Munde ignited at its top level because the state slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led Central government for refusal to share empirical data on Other Backward Class (OBC) giving administrative reasons and errors. And also stated that if the power is given to states and Union Territories to their OBC list, it would not pave the way for restoring the quota until the Centre lifts the 50 percent ceiling on reservations.
