Silent Maratha Kranti Morcha held in Nagpur, demands reservation in jobs...



The Marathas today took out a 'silent march' as part of their statewide mobilisation to press for demands like reservation in jobs and education for their community. The community is also seeking action against misuse of SC/ST Atrocities Act 1989. It has also denounced the brutal rape and murder of a Maratha girl at Kopardi in Ahmednagar district.

After the Sakal Maratha Samaj, which organised the protest march here, allegedly decided to go alone excluding the Kunbis from the agitation, the Marathas turned out in large numbers to showcase their strength. The march, however, began late by an hour from the historic Reshimbagh ground in South-eastern part of the city. A bust of Maratha warrier Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was placed on the small dais and garlanded on the occasion.
