How Congress, BJP compete to take credit for 27 pc OBC quota in MP

NEW DELHI: The ruling BJP and the main opposition Congress are competing with each other in Madhya Pradesh to take credit for the implementation of reservation to Other Backward Classes (OBCs) from the earlier 14 per cent to 27 per cent.
In the latest development, the Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) launched a statewide yatra to thank state president Kamal Nath for his efforts to implement the quota as the former chief minister.
The yatra seeks to appreciate Kamal Nath’s efforts to increase the reservation for OBCs from 14 per cent to 27 per cent in the state.
Showing green light to the yatra, Kamal Nath said, “For 18 years, (chief minister) Shivraj Singh (Chouhan) said that he was the protector of OBCs, but it was only during the tenure of Congress that OBCs were given 27 per cent reservation. Now, the ruling party wants to take away the credit.”
Calling it a matter of sentiments and not statements, Nath appealed to the OBC community of MP to realise the facts of the situation.
Earlier last week, the MP government under Shivraj Singh Chouhan issued an order regarding extending the benefit of enhanced reservation to 27 per cent for OBCs.
The Congress supporters claim that the announcement for the same was made by the Kamal Nath-led Congress government in 2019.
