Pune: Instead of tendering resignations over Maratha quota, legislators should have raised points in houses and discussed the issue, Shivsangram Party President Vinayak Mete said in Pune on Saturday. He refused to step down over the issue. He also appealed to the Maratha community to conduct a peaceful agitation. 

While addressing a press conference after a party meeting, he said, “The State government has taken various decisions for the common people. The government has decided to build hostels for the Maratha community. It has also decided to provide Rs 500 crore to Annasaheb Patil Mahamandal. The State government is not against the Maratha community. We are suffering injustice from the coalition state government. However, we are in power to solve problems of the Maratha community.”

He appealed to the Maratha community to conduct a peaceful agitation. “Reservation process has reached the final stage. We will meet chief minister Fadnavis and clear our stand on reservation,” he said.  

“The Maratha community is showing anger against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government. Hence, we will take a decision at the right time to support the government or not,” he said.
