President BJP OBC Morcha, J&K UT, Sunil Prajapati and other leaders met Dr K. laxman BJP OBC National President and Rajya Sabha MP  in Delhi and submitted a memorandum demanding that OBC reservation should be implemented in J&K at the earliest at par with other states.

Sunil Prajapati expressed that the reservation to Other Backward Classes (OBCs) has not yet been implemented in J&K as per Constitutional provisions, in accordance with Mandal Commission Recommendations, even after revocation of Article 370 while all Central Laws have been implemented and controversial laws enacted during Article 370 regime have been removed.

He said that the controversial reservation law enacted by the previous Article 370 time Govts is still in force, which has denied reservation to OBCs as per Mandal Commission Recommendations but instead extended reservation to the people other than OBCs through unconstitutional Reserve categories “Residents of Backward Areas (RBA) and “Areas Adjoining to Line of Control (ALC)”, diluting OBC quota, violating Mandal Commission Recommendations and Article 15(4)&(5) and 16(4) of the Constitution.
