“In Bihar each celebration celebrates Karpoori Thakur’s anniversary. We are going to now take it to UP and lift the demand for reservation for EBCs within the state based mostly on the Karpoori system,” senior JD (U) chief KC Tyagi instructed ET. “At a later stage (Bihar chief minister) Nitish Kumar will even go to the state.”
Kumar has entrusted Tyagi with increasing the JD (U) in UP.
In 1977, as CM, Karpoori Thakur had advocated division of Different Backward Courses into EBCs and backward lessons for reservation. “We are going to guarantee 30 per cent reservation for EBCs in our celebration construction in UP,” mentioned Tyagi.
By means of the programme, the JD (U) is planning to make an entry into UP politics a yr earlier than the meeting election and goal greater than 40 per cent EBC voters of the state specifically. It’s a part of the NDA in Bihar and on the Centre but it surely has not determined to be a part of the NDA in UP.
“We are going to work to enhance our organisation and issues about alliance will come at a later stage. We are able to contest on our personal too,” mentioned Tyagi.
Previously few elections, the BJP has been successful bulk of the EBC votes in UP. The state authorities had shaped a Social Justice Committee for categorisation of OBC reservation, and it submitted its report in 2018. The thought was to pave the best way for dividing the 27 per cent OBC reservation to make sure advantages to small caste teams inside OBCs. Nevertheless, the report has but to be tabled within the state meeting.
Smaller caste-based events of UP are blaming the BJP authorities within the state for not implementing the report. OP Rajbhar, president of Suhel Dev Bharat Samaj Get together, who left the NDA in 2019, has been elevating this challenge usually within the state. “After I was a part of the NDA, I usually demanded implementation of the report of the Social Justice Committee. Now be it JD (U) or some other celebration all of them are simply 43 per cent MBC (most backward castes) votes within the state,” Rajbhar instructed ET. “The JD (U) is a part of the NDA and it ought to ask the federal government to implement the reservation for MBCs. That is simply to seize consideration with none critical intent.”
