Bhujbal asked how suddenly many records were being found showing Marathas belonging to the Kunbi caste.

These leaders were present in the meeting

Bhujbal and several other prominent OBC leaders, including congress leader Vijay Wadettiwar, Rajesh

Rathore, bjp Legislative Council member Gopichand Padalkar, Prakash Shendge and Mahadev Jankar,

organized the OBC Bhatke Vimukt Jaat Aarakshan Bachao Yalgaar Sabha (OBC and Nomads) in Ambad,

Jalna district of Maharashtra. Participated in the rally to save the reservation of tribes. The event took place 25

kilometers away from Antarwali Sarti village, where Jarange had started a hunger strike demanding Maratha

reservation in august and then in October.

Bhujbal said, “OBCs got reservation constitutionally and after the approval of the supreme Court. He (Jarange)

says that we have taken away their (Maratha community) reservation for 70 years. “Are we snatching

something from Jarange’s family?” He said, We do not oppose maratha reservation, but there should be no

encroachment on OBC quota. Bhujbal also questioned how records showing maratha families belonging to the

OBC community Kunbi caste are suddenly emerging. Following Jarange's hunger strike, the Eknath Shinde-led

maharashtra government decided to provide the benefit of OBC quota by granting Kunbi caste certificates to

those Marathas who proved their ancestors belonged to the Kunbi community during the Nizam rule in

Hyderabad. Can show documents. Bhujbal said, Initially (before 1948), 5,000 records were found in

Marathwada, which was part of the Nizam's hyderabad state. Later this number reached 13,500…when

elections were held in Telangana, this number increased further.
