OBC: MP Govt to submit modification plea


Bhopal, May 12 (UNI) The Madhya Pradesh dispensation will proffer a modification petition in the Supreme Court regarding OBC reservation in panchayat polls, state Home Minister and government spokesman Narottam Mishra said here on Thursday. Furnishing details regarding his Wednesday visit to the national capital with Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Dr Mishra told media representatives, “We interacted with the Solicitor General and the Additional SG. Other law experts' opinion was also solicited. Our endeavour shall be to go into the election with quota. Whether it is termed the helplessness or beauty of democracy, the very individuals (an oblique reference to the principal-opposition Congress) who created this OBC imbroglio are themselves organising press conferences. They sinned and then moved court! The Chief Minister has said and I am reiterating that our government is committed to conducting polls with reservation. Whatever is necessary, we shall endeavour to accomplish.”
