Coordination panel to study NPR issues in Maharashtra: Thackeray 

A coordination panel comprising senior leaders of the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi alliance in Maharashtra will look into various aspects of the National Population Register (NPR), Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray said here on Tuesday. Addressing media in Vidhan Bhawan in south Mumbai, where the budget session of the state legislature is underway, Thackeray also declined to comment on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's announcement that he was thinking of quitting social media.

"Responsible leaders of the three parties will be part of it (coordination committee on NPR)," Thackeray said.

"I won't let anyone snatch the right of any citizens of Maharashtra. I am very clear on this," he said, when asked of NPR in the state. On NCP minister Nawab Malik's recent announcement that there will be five percent quota for Muslims in education in Maharashtra, Thackeray said the issue hasn't come before him yet.

"The issue of five per cent quota for Muslims has not come to me officially till now. We have yet to decide about our stand on it," he said. On Modi's announcement that he was thinking of quiting social media, Thackeray said, "He (Modi) is big brother. I won't comment on it."
