Maharashtra BJP president Devendra Fadnavis Saturday criticised the state government for not filing a caveat in the High Court despite being aware that its decision of Maratha and Muslim reservation can be challenged.

The state government knew the decision can be challenged and accordingly it should have filed a caveat, Fadnavis told reporters here.

He reiterated his party’s opposition to the 5 per cent Muslim reservation, saying, religion based reservation was unconstitutional and it was exploring means to oppose the move.

Fadnavis also flayed the government for stopping the probe into the Rs 138-crore Agriculture Product Marketing Committee (APMC) fraud.
