Chronicle Reporter, Bhopal
Former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Uma Bharti has called a meeting of people belonging to the Other Backward Classes (OBC) community on Saturday to discuss the issue of reservation for OBCs in the Women’s Reservation Bill. Bharti herself gave information about this on social media.

While posting on X, she said that the Women’s Reservation Bill was also passed with full majority in the Rajya Sabha. Now, if a way for another amendment has to be found to give place to the backward classes, then discussions were held with the prominent leaders of the backward classes in and around Bhopal city. After this, it was decided to call another big meeting on 23 September.

Attacks Congress

She said that when former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda presented the Women’s Reservation Bill in 1996, she proposed OBC reservation in it. Deve Gowda belonged to the backward classes and was their supporter. That day, Congress and BJP were unanimous in the House to approve it without OBC reservation and were ready to support it. Deve Gowda sent it to a special committee and this bill remained pending for 27 years. Now suddenly Congress has started talking about OBC reservation, then why was it not implemented when the Manmohan Singh government was in power.
