Antique smuggling racket: Key idol smuggler held in police raid

The opposition Congress in Maharashtra on Tuesday demanded that the State Backward Class Commission’s report on Maratha quota issue be immediately tabled in the state Assembly.

On the second day of the Winter Session of the state Legislature, Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil said there is no clarity on the commission’s report.

The Maharashtra government Sunday announced the Maratha community will be granted quota under a new category called ‘Socially and Educationally Backward Class’ (SEBC), as per the recommendation of the State Backward Class Commission.
