On Sunday, January 10, the Maratha Kranti Morcha in a meeting demanded that the community should be provided quota within OBC reservation if the government fails to protect the Socially and Educationally Backward Classes (SEBC) reservation in the Supreme Court (SC) on January 25.

According to reports, Chief coordinator Ramesh Kere Patil said that if the stay on Maratha reservation is not lifted on January 25, students and youth will hold a sit-in agitation at Kranti Chowk on January 28 against the government.

A three-judge bench of the SC had in an interim order on September 9 stayed the 12 per cent SEBC reservation in education and 13 per cent in government jobs.

Maratha Kranti Morcha organised a 'First Elgar Parishad' in the city for propagating the rights of the Maratha community, the event was attended by a large number of students from Rajput, Dhangar, OBC communities who expressed their support for the demand for reservation for the Maratha community.

A resolution was also passed in the morcha meeting saying Aurangabad should be renamed Chhatrapati Sambhaji Nagar. The parishad on Sunday, January 10, also warned that the community will disrupt the meeting of revenue minister Balasaheb Thorat in the city during the upcoming civic polls, as he has opposed the renaming of Aurangabad as Sambhajinagar.
