Rajasthan Chief Minister, Ashok Gehlot, has made a major announcement regarding the reservation system in place in the largest state of the country. During his Udaipur tour, Gehlot said that earlier too, the reservation quota for the SC, ST and OBC categories had been increased by him and his regime, and this will once again get augmented by him and his government only.
“We will make sure that no section faces a loss”, added the Rajasthan CM.
As per Gehlot’s announcement, reservation in the state will now go up to a record 72 percent. It is noteworthy that in Congress-ruled Chhattisgarh, it is already 82 percent.
Along with this, CM Gehlot has put up a demand for caste-based census, and has asked the centre for the provision of the same, through a letter written to the Prime Minister.
He also stated that the ‘Mehengai Rahat’ camps are running successfully across the state, and everyone is enjoying the benefits.
