The Maharashtra government has decided to observe the coronation day as “Shiv Swaraj Day” by putting ‘gudi’ on the roof of local bodies, schools, colleges and houses. “We are making every effort under the leadership of Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to give reservation to Maratha community, which has been quashed by the Supreme Court,” Pawar said.
Pune. Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar on Sunday said the state government is making “every effort” to provide reservation to Marathas without tampering with the reservations being given to other communities. Pawar’s remarks came two days after a committee headed by retired high court judge Dilip Bhosale recommended in its report that the Maharashtra government file a review petition against the Supreme Court’s decision. Pawar was talking to reporters at the Pune Zilla Parishad office on the sidelines of “Shiv Swarajya Din” on the anniversary of the coronation of Shivaji Maharaj as “Chhatrapati” in 1674. The Maharashtra government has decided to observe the coronation day as “Shiv Swaraj Day” by putting ‘gudi’ on the roof of local bodies, schools, colleges and houses. Pawar said, “We are making every effort under the leadership of Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to give reservation to the Maratha community, which has been quashed by the Supreme Court.” Which was based on Maratha reservation but some people are still trying to provoke public sentiments. Pawar was replying to a question on the statement of former councilor Narendra Patil.

Patil had said that a “true Maratha” like him would not sit silent and if needed, he would plant a bomb in his body and detonate it for reservation. The Deputy Chief Minister said, “On this occasion, I want to assure the people, especially the people of the Maratha community, that the MVA government is making efforts to ensure that Marathas get reservation without disturbing the reservation of other communities.” Said that a delegation led by Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray met Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on the Maratha reservation issue. When asked about the statement of senior BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis, the senior NCP leader said, “14 months have passed since this episode and now we are moving forward.” It was a mistake to make. Asked about a statement by Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut, Pawar said that everyone has the opinion of his party. Raut had said that if his party joins hands with the NCP for the Pune Municipal Corporation elections, the Shiv Sena will contest at least 80 seats out of the total 162 seats. Meanwhile, Pawar said he was of the personal opinion that there should be a two-member ward system for municipal elections.
