APMC: The mathadis (head-load­ers) have threat­ened to strike work and take to the streets if their long-pend­ing de­mands are not met by the state gov­ern­ment at the ear­li­est. The de­ci­sion was taken at the an­nual Math­adi meet held at the APMC mar­ket onion po­tato mar­ket, ear­lier this week to com­mem­o­rate the 34th death an­niver­sary of math­adi leader An­nasa­heb Patil. The mathadis were also up­set at lack of rep­re­sen­ta­tion at the meet­ing by any gov­ern­ment min­is­ter. MLC and math­adi leader Naren­dra Patil said, “The gov­ern­ment has been try­ing to get rid of the Math­adi Act. There are is­sues of math­adi hous­ing and re­stric­tions at APMC whole­sale mar­ket. If the state gov­ern­ment does not re­solve the is­sues, then mathadis across the state, will take to the streets.”
