SC gives green signal to OBC reservation in local elections in Madhya Pradesh; directs MP Election Commission to notify local body election in one week.

Earlier, an organisation representing the other backward classes (OBCs) in Madhya Pradesh on Friday gave a call for a State-wide ‘bandh’ on May 21st to press for its demand to provide 27% reservation to the community in the local body polls.

The Pichhada Varg Mahasabha gave this call three days after the Supreme Court directed the State Election Commission (SEC) to notify local body polls in Madhya Pradesh within two weeks without quota for OBCs and observed that until the triple test exercise, mentioned in a Constitution bench verdict of 2010, is completed in all respect, no such reservation can be provisioned.
