  • | Thursday | 28th September, 2023

Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar: Maratha quota activist Manoj Jarange has announced a 12-day tour of different parts of Maharashtra from September 30, a move that could mount pressure on the state government. He told the media that he will conclude the tour with a mega gathering of Maratha community members in Antarwali Sarati on October 14, when the 30-day deadline sought by the state government officially ends. The gathering is expected to be held on a 100-acre plot. The tour will commence from Antarwali Sarati and will pass through Ambad, Kumbar Pimpalgaon, Partur, Mantha, Jintur in Jalna district before entering Hingoli district on October 1. The tour will then pass through the interiors of Nanded, Parbhani, Beed, Latur, Dharashiv, Solapur, Ahmednagar, Nashik, Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar and Buldhana districts. During these 12 days, we will reach out to the Maratha community members and appeal to them to hold peaceful agitations. We will appeal to them that no one should take any extreme measures nor disrupt peace, Jarange said. Members and leaders of the other backward class (OBC) have opposed the states assurance of recognising Maratha community as Kunbi, a category under the OBCs. Jarange said the OBC community should not fall for the tactics of the politicians, who are trying to cause rift between the Maratha and the OBC communities. He assured that the members and leaders of both communities will sit together and resolve their differences, if any.
