Maratha quota issue: pro-quota Maratha organization protest outside Kulkarni's house
A pro-quota Maratha organization today staged a demonstration outside the house of BJP MLA Medha Kulkarni here.
Members of the Morcha gathered outside Kulkarni's house in Dahanukar Colony today, and when she did not come out to talk to them, they started shouting slogans, said a police officer.
Police detained 51 persons who were released later, he said.
Some of the agitators were also miffed with Kulkarni's reported statement calling protests outside legislators' houses a "stunt".
The Kothrud MLA denied having made such as a statement.
She also alleged that some of the protesters hurled bottles at her house, tried to barge in and used "unparliamentary" language.
"I was not informed about the agitation outside my house by members of MKM in advance. When it started, I was in my office, so conveyed a message through police that I can accept their memorandum at my office," Kulkarni said.
But the agitators chose to remain outside her residence, she said.
