Maharashtra: Amid consistent protests over reservation for Marathas, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Thursday called a meeting of his MLAs to discuss the issue.

Ahead of the issue, the CM is set to have dialogue with people from Maratha groups.


The meeting will take place a day after Maratha activists held a 'jail bharo' protest in Mumbai, demanding immediate implementation of reservations in jobs and education for the community.

Thirty four protesters were detained, a police official said. They were later released, he added.

Pro-quota groups led by the Maratha Kranti Morcha organised the 'jail bharo' agitation at Azad Maidan in south Mumbai while local groups in some parts of the state also held similar protests.

Rail and road traffic in the city wasn't affected by the Maratha community protest today, an official said here.

Adequate security arrangements have been made in the state in view of the ongoing protests, police said.

"We have lost confidence in Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and his hollow assurances of offering reservation to Maratha community," said Kedar Shinde, a protester at Azad Maidan.
