There were no differences within the ruling UPA on reservation for OBCs in premier central government educational institutions and the report of the Oversight Committee on reservations would be implemented in three years, Committee Chairman Veerappa Moily on Sunday said.
Talking to reporters in Madurai, the senior Congress leader said committee's report was submitted after a national consensus.
Moily, who is on an election campaign tour, said the report would be implemented in three years. "We have worked practical solutions in the report".
Regarding the creamy layer, he said he had left it to the decision of the Prime Minister.
Describing the 27 per cent reservation as unprecedented and it was in the interest of the Backward Classes, he said as of now it would be implemented in the premier central government institutes.
Moily, who is also the Chairman of the Administrative Reforms Commission, said the report on crisis and disaster management was ready and it would be submitted to the Prime Minister as and when he gave appointment to meet him.
Reports on ethics in governance, public order and conflict, terrorism, police, criminal justice system had to be prepared.
He said the administrative reforms commission had also recommended a lot of powers to the urban local bodies like the panchayats, as urbanisation was taking place at a fast pace and elected members of local body including mayors and chairpersons would have more powers and money sanctioned by the Centre would go directly to the people.
