     Raipur, September 08, 2016: Chhattisgarh Cabinet, Chaired by Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh, today included castes like Jogi and Nathjogi under the Other Backward Caste category.

     “The Cabinet today approved the proposal to include Jogi, Nathjogi, Thudia, Thuria, Gabhel, Gawel, Gudiya Gudeeya under the OBC (Other Backward Caste) category,” official sources told ChhattisgarhTopNews.Com.

     The cabinet, held at the CM house this evening, discussed the recommendations of the Chhattisgarh State Backward Commission and the Scheduled Tribe Investigation and Training Institute and included eight castes into the fold of OBC, they said.

     This could be a jolt to former Chief Minister Ajit Jogi led Chhattisgarh Jan Congress (Jogi) as the new party wanted to retain the name of Jogi in its title but after Jogi was declared a Caste under the OBC in the state that could be jeopardized as name of any castes cannot be a name of any political party.
