It was all in a day's work

for a couple as they tied the nuptial knot amid the cacophony

of sloganeering during the Maratha quota stir today.

Tejaswini Gawande and Abhimanyu Adhav exchanged

wedding garlands at Akot in Akola district even as they took

part in their community's protest for reservations in jobs and


The ceremony took place at the Akot agricultural

produce market committee (APMC) and was attended in large

numbers by friends and family of the couple.

The family members had planned to participate in the

Maratha quota stir before the rituals began but it was later

decided that the marriage would be solemnised in the APMC

premises itself.

The couple was seen joining the Maratha protesters in

raising pro-quota slogans before taking their wedding vows.

The Marathas, who form around two-third of the state's

13 crore population, today staged a state-wide bandh seeking

quota in education and government jobs.
