Lakhs from across Maharashtra walked a silent rally in South Mumbai demanding reservation in education and government jobs for the Marathas.
All party leaders extended support to the protest and said the demand for reservation should be fulfilled.
“Maratha protest would start from Byculla zoo and pass through JJ flyover to Azad Maidan. This will be a silent protest and no speeches would be given.
A delegation would meet the chief minister Devendra Fadnavis with a charter of demands.
“The chief minister is expected speak to them about giving reservation to the community. There is an enthusiasm in the community about the protest. Many have already reached the city,” Congress leader Narayan Rane had said on Tuesday.
