Wives of policemen call off hunger strike
Azad Maidan - Yashashree Patil, President of Maharashtra State Police Wives Association was on hunger strike from 39 days in regard to harassment of lower rank personnel in the police department. The protest was carried out in Azad Maidan. "When the common man has a problem, he goes to the police. Whom will the police go to when they face problems?” asks Yashashree. To calm the protest and stop the strike, Shiv Sena MLA Deepak Kesarkar came on Tuesday in the support of the housewives on the hunger strike. Within two days, a meeting will be held in regard with this protest. An ordinance comprising all the demands of the wives of personnel will be released, assured Kesarkar. Finally, Yashashree Patil has put her strike on hold.
