Silent march in Aurangabad against Maha Govt's move to raise quota

Aurangabad, Maharashtra, Jun 20 (UNI) Protesting against the
Maharashtra government's decision to give reservation above the 50
per cent limit in alleged violation of the norms of Indian
Constitution, the members of Fight for Justice and some other
organisations took out a silent march here on Thursday.
As per the provision in the Constitution, the reservation limit
should not exceed 50 per cent.

The silent march, led by Fight for Justice's Pravin Kabra, started
from the Kranthi Chowk and culminated at Shahgunj near the Gandhi
Statue. The protesters carried the placards with slogans of 'Save
Merit Save Nation' written on them.
Later, the march was converted into a public rally, in which even
the school students participated.
Addressing the rally, the leaders said that the Constitution has set
the limit of up to 50 per cent for reservation, however the
government intends to provide quota above the set limit for the
political mileage, they claimed.
With the government raising the quota limit beyond 50 per cent, the
students are being treated unfairly, they further claimed.

They further claimed that the state government has increased the
reservation ceiling of 50 per cent to 78 per cent for the political
benefit, consequently, the poor students of open categories are
deprived of higher education, they alleged.
