Even after Maharashtra State Backward Class Commission suggested 16 per cent reservation to Maratha community, the protesting Maratha outfit at Mumbai’s Azad Maidan is reluctant to stop their hunger strike. 

Under the leadership of Sambhaji Patil, Maratha Kranti Morcha activists have been on an indefinite hunger strike for 15 days now. Almost 500 people have joined the protest. On the report, Patil informed that their demands are different from the suggestions made by the commission’s report. Therefore, they will continue with the hunger strike. 

Earlier, the protestors said that if the reservation is not implemented until November 19, there will be a huge agitation outside Mantralaya. 

The protestors said that despite the reservation they also demand the state government to withdraw criminal cases registered against the youth during the agitation earlier. Moreover, Patil informed that 39 Maratha youth has died over the demands of the community, their families shall be compensated ₹10 lakh each. 

While talking to Mumbai Live, Protestor Navnath Patil said that the Maratha youth across Maharashtra including Hingoli, Parbhani, Nanded, Solapur, and Aurangabad are coming to Mumbai to enclose the government so that their demands can be heard and fulfilled.
