No more agitation on roads, only sit-ins: Maratha Morcha

first_imgCoordinators of the Maratha Kranti Morcha have decided to not hold future demonstrations on roads. They will instead resort to peaceful sit-ins outside houses of MPs and MLAs. At a meeting held in Parli of Beed district on Thursday, they demanded that Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis announce reservation to the Maratha community by August 7 and the government dissolve the cabinet sub-committee headed by Revenue Minister Chandrakant Patil.“If the government fails to do these, the Morcha will resume its State-wide agitation from August 9,” Abasaheb Patil, one of the coordinators, said.The coordinators claimed that none of the Maratha quota agitators were involved in the violence that erupted at various places during the agitation. “Action should be taken against those responsible for the clashes,” Mr. Patil said.The members hinted that Parli will henceforth be the decision-making centre of the protest. “We will form a separate committee to hold parleys with the government,” Ramesh Kere-Patil, another coordinator, said. However, Morcha coordinators in other districts are not pleased with the meeting in Beed, and accuse Mr. Patil and other leaders of trying to hog the limelight by making Parli the future nerve centre.“The prominent members in the Parli meet like Mr. Abasaheb Patil belong to the Chhava Sanghatana, a minor Maratha outfit. By holding an impromptu press meet without consulting coordinators in other districts, they are trying to monopolise the movement. But, the protest is beyond any single outfit’s control,” Shantaram Kunjir, a coordinator in Pune, told The Hindu.In a parallel development, the Pune Rural Police arrested 18 persons, including three minors, for arson, and damage to public property during the clashes in Chakan. The police have also identified nearly 100 people who were part of groups indulged in vandalism.last_img read more
