Maharashtra govt has decided to train 2K OBC students for the Maharashtra Public UPSC exams. Speaking to reporters, the minister said that talks are also underway with aviation companies to impart pilot training to 25 students in each year.
The state government has sanctioned the funds to the tune of 150 CR for Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Research and Training Institute, of which 40 CR have been disbursed.
Wadettiwar said that we are going to train 2,000 OBC students for the MPSC exam and 1,000 for UPSC exams Under Mahajyoti. Similarly, a project will also be undertaken to train 25 persons as commercial pilots, of which 33 per cent will be from the VJNT class and 67 per cent from the OBC category.
Talking about the appointment of MPSC board members, Wadettiwar said that other communities should also be given preference while appointing members, and the issue will be taken up with the chief minister.
The state government is planning to set up a separate commission for gathering data needed in court for political reservation of OBCs. The Union Cabinet for clearing a constitution amendment bill that seeks to give states the power to make their own OBC lists. The bill presented in the Parliament is incomplete. The Central government has pushed its responsibility on states regarding reservation. Without Constitutional amendment, reservation beyond 50 per cent is not possible.
