BJP urges Odisha government to ensure 27 per cent quota for OBCs


The BJP OBC Morcha has urged the State government to first fulfil the constitutional mandate of providing 27 per cent reservation, failing which a large number of candidates from backward classes will be deprived of government jobs.

The saffron party which has been agitating over the issue accused the State government of deliberately denying the OBCs their rights. When a state like Karnataka has made a provision of 32 per cent reservation for OBCs, there is no justification for keeping the reservation at 11.25 per cent in Odisha.
