"He (Jarange) and his colleagues are trying to steal our reservation benefits. He should first stop it at once. If he withdraws his demand to get the reservation under the OBC grouping, it will be a big favour to us," the OBC leader said.

Bhujbal said various options at legal and administrative levels are being explored to protect the OBC reservation.

"I am getting support from across the parties for this cause of protecting the OBC quota. I respect the democratic processes where people have the right to express their views," he added.
