Nagpur/Chandrapur: The OBC organizations have completely withdrawn their 20-day statewide agitation after the Maharashtra government’s assurances on Saturday to fulfil their demands.
Though the agitation at Samvidhan Square in the city was wrapped up last week, it was continued in Chandrapur where OBC activists Ravindra Tonge, Vijay Balki and Premanand Jogi were on hunger strike. On Saturday morning, deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis visited the protesters at the venue in front of Chandrapur collectorate and convinced them to end their strike.
The deputy CM was accompanied by Chandrapur guardian minister Sudhir Mungantiwar, MLAs — Kishor Jorgewar and Bunty Bhangadia, MLC Parinay Fuke and National OBC Federation president Baban Taywade. The National OBC Federation immediately announced complete withdrawal of the statewide agitation.
Fadnavis told the protesters that the government was committed to grant reservation to the Marathas, but not at the cost of OBCs or other communities. “We will ensure that Marathas and OBCs do not clash on the issue. The OBC reservation will not be diluted at any cost.”
The Deputy CM said the state government is positive on the majority of demands raised by the OBC leaders during their meeting at ‘Sahyadri’ in Mumbai.
Refuting opposition’s claims that the government had only granted oral assurance to the OBC leaders, Taywade said the minutes of the entire meeting were recorded and those would be handed over to them by next week. “It was attended by CM Eknath Shinde and deputy CMs – Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar. Even the secretaries from many departments and other staff were present, who noted down the discussions of the meeting. We have decided to withdraw only after all over demands were agreed upon by the government.”
Taywade warned of relaunching the agitation if the government failed to adhere to its promises once the Winter Assembly session starts in Nagpur from December 7.
