Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel questioned the BJP’s reservation agitation, saying that they should first clarify their position. Our position is unequivocal: the facilities granted to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes in the Indian Constitution must be implemented. We are also in favour of implementing the Mandal Commission’s recommendations.
In a discussion with the media on the reservation issue, Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel stated that the BJP should make its position clear. I had asked the question earlier through you guys, but they had not responded.
The Chief Minister stated that if they had implemented reservation in 2011 and submitted the report of the committee headed by Nankiram Kanwar to the court, this situation would not have arisen. The BJP is to blame for the current state of affairs.
