“The violence is taking the State backward. The government as well as the common man have to face the losses,” he said.

 “I prepared a plan of 69 per cent reservation for the Maratha community on the lines of Tamil Nadu. The reservation is possible according to Article 15 and 16 of the Constitution,” he further said.
