Mumbai: NCP chief Sharad Pawar took cognizance of injustice with Other Backward Classes (OBCs) and Scheduled Castes (SCs) in getting government jobs in tribal-dominated areas. Pawar assured party legislator Pandurang Barora to look into the matter. He called chief minister Devendra Fadnavis and asked him to protect right of non-tribals.

The Free Press Journal has published the news ‘OBCs oppose 100 percent tribal recruitment directives’ on Saturday. NCP legislator Barora called on Pawar at his residence ‘Silver Oak’ in Mumbai and briefed him about the issue. He, then, spoke with CM Devendra Fadnavis and urged him to look into the matter.
