Maharashtra Social Justice Minister Rajkumar Badole said that he would quit if reservation quotas in government job recruitments and promotions were scrapped.

“There is a year’s time to appeal against the order. The government is positive on the issue. I will quit if quota is scrapped,” Badole said at Mantralaya here.

Incidentally, the Maharashtra Administrative Tribunal (MAT) had cancelled reservation quotas in government job recruitments and promotions implying that there would be no reservations henceforth in government jobs as well as promotions, for socially and economically backward classes in Maharashtra.

The MAT order which was passed on November 28, 2014 had said that there is no need for reservations in government jobs as well as promotions.
