मविआ सरकारच्या मराठा आरक्षण बाबतच्या दूरदृष्टीला पुनश्च हरी ओम करून... राज्य सरकारने मराठा आरक्षण केराच्या टोपलीत टाकलं.

गेल्या 50 वर्षात का नाही राष्ट्रवादी काँग्रेस व काँग्रेस पक्षाने आरक्षण देऊ केलं?
का नको आहे उपेक्षित मराठा घटकांची प्रगती? (1/16)
मराठा आरक्षणासंदर्भात खालील उपस्थित प्रश्न.

1. 9 राज्यात 50% पेक्षा जास्त आरक्षण असताना मराठा आरक्षणाला विरोध का? बाजु कोर्टात का व्यवस्थित मांडली गेली नाही ?
2. 102 व्या घटनादुरुस्ती संदर्भातील वेगळी भूमिका राज्य सरकारनं का घेतली. (2/16)
3. 102 व्या घटनादुरूस्तीनुसार राज्याला आरक्षण देण्याचे अधिकार आहेत , हे उच्च न्यायालयाने मान्य केले होते. मागास आयोगाच्या अहवालानुसार मराठा समाज मागास असल्याचे सिद्ध झाले आहे तरी देखील राज्यसरकार या गोष्टी का कोर्टात पटवून देऊ शकले नाही? (3/16)
