Yogi: Will cooperate in completion of ULB polls as per SC order | India News

LUCKNOW: Welcoming the Supreme Court order on the urban local body elections, chief minister Yogi Adityanath said here on Wednesday that his government would cooperate in holding the polls within the apex court time limit while implementing reservation for the OBC.
“We welcome the order given by the Honourable Supreme Court regarding the urban body election in Uttar Pradesh,” the CM said in a tweet in Hindi. “The government of Uttar Pradesh will cooperate in the completion of civic body elections while implementing OBC reservation within the time limit given by the Honourable Supreme Court,” he added.
Earlier, after the December 27 HC verdict asking the state government to hold the ULB polls by January 31, 2023, without backward classes reservation, the CM had said that the civic elections would be held only after extending quota benefit to the backward classes.
“In the context of urban local body polls, a commission would be set up which would fix the reservation for the OBCs as per the triple test formula,” he had said. A few days after the HC verdict, the UP government constituted a five-member backward classes commission to submit a report on the basis of which the OBC quota could be fixed.
