Sudin Blames Vishnu For OBC’s Woes

Under attack for failure to address the needs of the Other Backward Classes, Social Welfare Minister Sudin Dhavlikar sought to exonerate himself of charges of cast bias by blaming Vishnu Surya Wagh, Chairman of the Goa State OBC Development Corporation.
Facing a barrage of questions and charges over various issues including non-recruitment of OBCs in government posts, Sudin said it was because of the non-co-operative attitude of the chairman of Goa State OBC Development Corporation.

The minister’s utterance is bound to have ramifications in the days to come as it is bound to launch a war or words on cast lines given the fact that the minister belongs to the Brahmin community while Vishnu Wagh belongs to the Bhandari community classified as one of the many OBCs in Goa.
Besides, it also has political overtones as Sudin is a member of the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party that was said to be the the party of the Bhandari community while Vishnu is a member of the Indian National Congress Party.
