30 November 2018 Current Events Kisan march in Delhi: Farmers from across the country gather in the capital

Farmers from different Indian states gathered in Delhi this Thursday for another Kisan march. The demands included a raise in crop prices, and loan wavering, among others.

The farmers marched towards Ramlila ground, coming in from states like Orissa, Haryana, Punjab etc. Farmers from as far as Bengaluru and Maharastra were also expected at the rally. Several activists, including P. Sainath, Medha Patkar etc extended their support.


16% Maratha quota approved in Maharashtra

Yesterday, the Maharashtra state legislature passed the quota bill - first in the state assembly, and then, in the upper house. Now, Marathas will be eligible to get 16% reservation in education and government jobs within the state, raising the total reservation quota in the state to 68%.

The next step will be for the state Governor C Vidyasagar Rao to clear the law. A stern legal scrutiny is still a possibility. The BJP government in Maharashtra, however, has clarified that the reservation was based on recommendations by the Maharashtra State Backward Commission (MSBCC). The authority of deciding how backward a particular community in the state rests with the commission.
