Maharashtra politics changed in June: CM Shinde

Mr Shinde said that a change took place in Maharashtra politics in June and a new government came to power which is working hard to resolve issues faced by the Maratha community.

Mr Shinde said even though the Supreme Court has cancelled the reservation in education and government jobs to the Maratha community the state government has fielded a team of lawyers to plead its case. ‘’The government has increased the financial allocation of the Annasaheb Patil Mahamandal and Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj Research Training and Human Development Institute (SARTHI) which are engaged in giving financial assistance and training to the youth from the Maratha community,’’ he noted.

In his speech Mr Fadnavis said after the new government came to power it has revived the closed schemes meant for the Maratha community. ‘’The government will continue to fight the legal fight for the Maratha reservation. The government will strongly stand with the Maratha community till it gets justice,’’he declared.
