Gujrathi demands Patil's resignation for opposing reservation

Written by: Staff

Nagpur, Jun 13 (UNI) Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) state president Arun Gujrathi today suggested that party MLA Shalinitai Patil should resign and not wait for a show-cause notice to be issued to her following her anti-reservation statements.

Speaking at a meet-the-Press, organised by Nagpur Union of Working Journalists (NUWJ) here, Gujrathi said his party was firm to support to the reservation for the OBC in private institutions and all the functioneries of the party should follow the party suit strictly.

''The party would not tolerate if any leader expresses his view against the party's policies and programmes,'' he said.

Shalinitai Patil could express her views against the reservations in her personal capacity, but not on the platform of the party as an MLA, he added.

Replying to a question, he said his party would extend to all cooperation to the DF Government's stand on the issue of hike in petrol and diesel prices. ''If tomorrow Cabinet decides to reduce the income tax on fuel, NCP would support its decision,'' he added.
