Maha Govt in favour of meeting major demands of Marathas: Sambhaji Raje
Nashik, Jun 21 (UNI) MP Sambhaji Raje Bhosale said on Monday that the outcome of his recent discussions with the Maharashtra government was positive with Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar giving a firm assurance on meeting the major demands of the Maratha community.
Speaking to reporters after an agitation here, he said that the state government has sought a period of 21 days for administrative approval.
However, they are ready to wait for one month, he pointed and said if their major demands are not met in a month’s time, then they will have to decide on the next course of the movement.
Mr Bhosale further said that the government was ready to give concessions to the Maratha community just like the OBCs.
Also, it was ready to provide hostels for the students of the Maratha community in 23 districts, he informed.
“We want to focus on what options are available for the Maratha community to get reservation. The first option is the review petition, the second way is to create a backward class commission through Article 338B,” the MP added.
Earlier, addressing the agitators in Nashik, Mr Bhosale stressed that he was trying to bring the Bahujan Samaj together.
