"It is a corrupt and intruder-supporting government:" Keshav Prasad Maurya criticises TMC after HC's decision on cancellation of OBC certificates

Prayagraj: Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya on Thursday criticized the Trinamool Congress (TMC) after the Calcutta High Court decided to cancel all Other Backward Class (OBC) certificates issued in West Bengal post-2010 and labelled the TMC as a "corrupt and intruder-supporting government."
"Congress did injustice to the SC, ST, and OBC communities in the country by looting their rights. I welcome the Calcutta High Court's decision to cancel all OBC certificates issued in West Bengal after 2010. Mamata Banerjee had issued these certificates to Bangladeshi and Rohingya intruders," Maurya said.
Maurya also criticized prominent opposition leaders for their silence on the matter.
"Rahul Gandhi and Akhilesh Yadav are silent over this. Mamata Banerjee says that she will not accept this decision. If a CM doesn't accept the decision of a High Court, they don't have the right to continue on the post," Maurya said.
Maurya further added, "It is a corrupt and intruder-supporting government. Whether it is Congress, SP, BSP, or TMC, they are all anti-backward and anti-Dalit."
Hours after the Calcutta High Court cancelled OBC certificates issued in West Bengal after 2010, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday said she will not accept the judgement and "OBC reservation continues and will always continue".
Addressing a poll rally at Khardah under the Dumdum Lok Sabha constituency, she attacked the BJP and also spoke about the court order.
"Even today I heard a judge passing an order, who has been very famous. The Prime Minister is saying that minorities will take away the Tapasheeli reservation, can this ever happen? Minorities can never touch the Tapasheeli or tribal reservation, but these mischievous people (BJP) get their work done through agencies, they have got the order through someone but I will not accept this opinion...Those who have given the order should keep it to themselves, we will not accept the opinion of BJP, OBC reservation continues and will always continue," she said.
The Calcutta court on May 22 directed the West Bengal Backward Classes Commission to prepare a new list of OBCs in accordance with the 1993 Act.
Those who were on the OBC list before 2010 will remain. However, after 2010, OBC nominations have been cancelled.
About 5 lakh OBC certificates are set to be cancelled.
After 2010, those who have jobs under the OBC quota or are in the process of getting them cannot be excluded from the quota. There will be no impact on their job and they cannot be excluded from the quota.
