Maharashtra asks Central forces to face Maratha quota agitation
Maratha Kranti Morcha, the umbrella organization of the agitators, seeking reservation in jobs and education, had said it would start a new round of protests all over the state from August 9.
We have written to the Centre that we would need additional forces to counter any untoward situation," he said.
Four police officials were injured in stone pelting and over sixty vehicles were damaged during a protest at Chakan near Pune on July 30.
Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, who today met prominent members of the community, said his government was committed to providing reservation to the Marathas in such a way that it stands scrutiny in the courts.
