Latur (Mah), Mar 5: Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis today said here that his government would respect the verdict of the court on the Muslim reservation issue. He was in Latur for the inauguration of Vivekananad Cancer Hospital.
Fadnavis, while speaking to reporters about the ordinance on Muslim reservation in jobs issued by the previous Congress-NCP government, said that it had lapsed already, so the notification announcing it was scrapped.
His government would abide by the court's final verdict on the issue, he added. The original ordinance, which gave reservations to both Marathas and Muslims, has been challenged before the Bombay High Court.
