According to sources, in the meeting, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and BJP President JP Nadda talked about resolving the matter soon. Nadda said that an important meeting has been held in this matter and an appropriate decision will be taken soon. Anupriya Patel had also raised this issue in the NDA meeting before the last session.

What is the controversy

UP Basic Education Council had organized the Assistant Teacher Recruitment Exam in the year 2019. After the results came, the council was accused of ignoring the reservation rules.

It was said in the complaints that the rules of OBC reservation were bypassed in this competitive examination. The matter gained momentum when the Backward Classes Commission, after several complaints in this context, sought a reply from the state government for ignoring the reservation rules.

Why is BJP worried, in fact, after the results of the competitive examinations related to this, reserved category candidates are staging a sit-in in many districts of Uttar Pradesh and have started a big campaign against the state government on social media as well. The BJP does not want it to be labeled as an anti-social justice party during the elections.

The issue of caste census also raised The issue of caste census also raised in the
NDA meeting. JDU and Apna Dal appealed to the government to take a clear line on the issue. JDU's Lalan Singh and Anupriya Patel said that the government should take a clear stand in this matter. Sources say that the government can make an important announcement for the caste census in this session.
