Those who have got jobs in place of Marathas should be identified and their properties should be confiscated, Maratha activist Manoj Jarange-Patil said on Thursday at Daund in Pune district while addressing a rally of Maratha community members.
Jarange-Patil, who received a grand welcome at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Chowk of Daund, said in the meeting afterwards that apart from a huge loss to the Maratha community, the lack of quota has led to a huge social development deficit.
Had Maratha community been given quota 70 years back, the community would have proved to be the best across the globe, Jarange-Patil said and added that the government should explain while the community was being denied the quota on the grounds of non availability of evidences, how come the records and entries of OBC caste names started coming forth after the community started a tough agitation?
While warning those who are opposing Maratha quota, Jarange-Patil said, "We are the kind of people who don't talk for two-years if the compound of a farm is broken by someone. Those opposing our agitation should keep this in mind."
"We won't have to pick a stone because for the opponents only our hands, that have been toiling in fields, are sufficient," Jarange-Patil added while stating that the cyclical faste agitation shall begin from December 1 and the government should beware of the December 24 deadline. "The community won't stop without taking the quota now," he added.
