Citadel - - FLASHBACK -

Chief Min­is­ter Deven­dra Fad­navis has been given an ul­ti­ma­tum by the Maratha Aarak­shan Sang­harsh Samiti to ful­fil their de­mands by May 8, fail­ing which they will carry out a state-wide ag­i­ta­tion. Sev­eral Maratha or­ga­ni­za­tions held a round table con­fer­ence in Kol­ha­pur re­cently, which passed five res­o­lu­tions, out of which one ac­cused the Chief Min­is­ter for caus­ing un­wanted rifts within the Maratha com­mu­nity by mak­ing false and empty prom­ises. One of the ma­jor res­o­lu­tions passed was the scrap­ping of the An­nasa­heb Patil Vikas Ma­haman­dal, set up to help poor Maratha stu­dents with fi­nan­cial help. Noth­ing has been done so far by the trust. They also said that the min­is­ters would not be al­lowed to en­ter their ar­eas for cam­paign­ing for next year’s Lok Sabha elec­tions if their de­mands are not ful­filled.
