‘Government belongs to everybody, not to anybody’ – Dhananjay Munde

“Yesterday, in the cabinet meeting, there was a discussion with the Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister. The government has taken the issues raised by the delegation of protesters seriously. Bhujbal will put forward the government’s stand on this issue with authority. This is definitely something that we all feel. 8 months ago, there was no such atmosphere. We all lived with Gunya Govinda. Everyone lived together in the village. But for the last nine months, the role that the government is playing in the minds of OBCs in Maharashtra is the role of one community. This has created misunderstanding among OBCs. This is their food. The government belongs to everyone. It belongs to no one. The government does not do injustice to anyone. There was confusion among OBCs whether this understanding is correct or not. We respected your feelings. So we came today. Before that three ministers also came and went. Today, on behalf of the government, under the leadership of Bhujbal, Gulabrao Patil, Girish Mahajan, Atul Save, Uday Samant, we have come to put forward the government’s stand. Bhujbal will tell what the government will do regarding OBC reservation.
