Gujarat government proposes special sops for economically weaker sections
Gandhinagar : Although being the stronghold of successful business bigwigs and big ticket jewelers, amidst reservation protests and Patel community backlash, Gujarat government has begun giving a sincere look of attention to the economically weaker sections within the state.
In an effort to resolve the quota imbroglio, Gujarat Chief Minister Anandiben Patel is likely to offer a special package of incentives to economically weaker sections (EWS) of the socially upper castes. The list of marginalized and demanding communities like the belligerent Patidar (Patel) community agitating for reservations might get some relief due to this step by which this Patidar community will be read at par with the OBCs when these sops are announced in an inclusive manner.
Chief Minister is expected to offer these sops for the EWS, recommended by the seven-member committee of ministers headed by Nitin Patel. The talks are schedule for today when Anandiben Patel will work out solutions during her talks with Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) leader Hardik Patel.
