A five-judge bench of the apex court had earlier in the day refused to lift the stay on the Maratha reservation. The court also did not allow the implementation of the previous recruitment before the moratorium. Earlier, the Maharashtra government had argued that the reservation limit had been exceeded by 50 per cent in some states. However, no relief was offered in connection with the reservation.

Today’s hearing on Maratha reservation has been postponed. The next hearing on the reservation is set for February 5. Lawyers from different places are in this case. There are also very large documents. Therefore, virtual hearing is very difficult, said Mukul Rohatgi. The covid vaccine is causing a delay of 6 to 7 weeks, so the hearing will be held on February 5. Many lawyers are older. So it takes time to get vaccinated. Prosecutors demanded that the hearing be adjourned for six to seven weeks, but the court said it would take two weeks.
Meanwhile, Vinayak Mete has accused the government of manipulating. Petitioner Vinod Patil has said that frustration is spreading in the society as the Maratha reservation hearing has been postponed.
