Maratha quota - Maharashtra on fire


Maratha Kranti Morcha (MKM)- a local outfit that was demanding reservations for their community has placed the state in a tense situation. Apart from reservation, the organisation has placed several demands before the state government. Lifting the cases against the protestors, compensation for those who died in agitation, complete loan waivers for the farmers are some of the demands in the long list.

To create much pressure on the government, MKM has even announced `Jail Bharo’ (filling of the prisons) today. This has of course kept the police on their heels as the previous agitation of MKM has resulted in huge violence. Huge loss to public as well as private property was reported during the protest of MKM on July 25th. And today, Maharashtra might witness much ackward scenes!
