Belagavi: Karnataka State Backward Classes Commission has been asked to submit its report as early as possible in regard to the hike in quota for the Vokkaliga community, said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.

Speaking to mediapersons at Suvarna Soudha here on Friday December 23, he said that the Vokkaliga MLAs met him and put forth a demand to hike reservations for their community in the wake of the increase in the population as well as fulfillment of their aspirations in education and employment besides aspiring for more opportunities.

The MLAs also submitted another memorandum seeking reservations for the communities connected such as Reddy and Bunts. Since the Kunchatiga community is not on the Central list it must be included in that list, they informed added Bommai.

Bommai said Dr. Nirmalanandanatha Swamiji had held a meeting and submitted a memorandum seeking a hike in quota for the Vokkaliga community, and it has been forwarded to the Backward Classes Commission. Accordingly, it is being revised. However, the recommendation must come from the Commission in accordance with the Constitution. So, the same was forwarded on November 29 and the Commission has informed that it will go through everything and then submit a report. The memorandum submitted on Friday will also be forwarded to the Commission, he said.
