New Delhi: The Supreme Court Thursday dismissed a Maharashtra government plea challenging a Bombay High Court order staying the operation of an ordinance providing for reservation to Marathas and Muslims in education and jobs.

An apex court bench headed by Chief Justice H.L. Dattu, while declining to interfere with the high court's interim order, said that it was still seized of the matter.

The previous Congress government in Maharashtra had issued an ordinance just before the assembly elections providing for 16 percent reservation to Marathas and five percent for Muslims in jobs and education.

However, the Bomby High Court by its Nov 14 order stayed the operation of the ordinance but retained the five percent reservation for Muslims in education only.
