Maratha reservation: Maha minister blames opposition

Nanded, Jun 23 (UNI) Maharashtra Revenue Minister Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil on Sunday claimed that the Maratha reservation movement is going astray as the opposition is presenting a different role.

Talking to mediapersons here after a party meeting, he said that the reservation movement is now going astray as seriousness of the movement has decreased.

The Mahayuti government has given 10 per cent reservation to the Maratha community, but the opposition party is presenting a different role, he claimed.

When asked about ongoing agitations in the state over Maratha reservation, the minister said, “Manoj Jarange-Patil is not Maratha society, we are also activists working for Maratha society.”

Discussions are ongoing at the government-level regarding both the communities, he noted.

When pointed that OBC leader Laxman Hake broke his hunger strike on Saturday (yesterday), Vikhe-Patil said that the demands of Maratha reservation and OBCs are also important and expressed that the way will be found.
