Mumbai in shambles over reservation stir


Mumbai, Maharashtra: The Maratha Kranti Morcha has called for a bandh in Mumbai and adjoining areas on Wednesday by Maratha outfits demanding reservation for the community in Maharashtra. Yesterday, after the protest turned violent there, was stone pelting and several vehicles were torched in Aurangabad and adjoining districts of Maharashtra.
One police constable lost his life while 9 others were injured in a suicide attempt by three agitators. The outfit had called for Maharashtra bandh after a twenty-seven-year-old Kakasaheb Shinde had jumped off a bridge over Godavari river in Aurangabad. He was rushed to a hospital where he was declared dead.
DCP Deepak Deoraj, PRO, Mumbai Police, said that all the necessary deployments have been made in Mumbai. He said, “The situation should be brought under control at the earliest. The CM should invite prominent representatives from the community participating in the protest for talks and start the process of resolving the stand-off. There was never any law and order issue.”

The Maratha Kranti Morcha said that essential services like water supply, fire brigade, ambulance services, hospitals, school and colleges, school buses are exempted from the bandh.
