Many got jobs according to Maratha reservation. However, during the Mahavikas Aghadi government, reservation was canceled in six months. At that time, no one took out a march on the canceled reservation, did not speak the language of agitation. We were having discussions with the people of Maratha Kranti Morcha. What should be done to get reservation? Was thinking about it. But now when the Shinde-Fadnavis government came, they started the language of agitation. He has also accused the opposition that everyone knows who is behind this.

"Maratha reservation should be given. But we want sustainable reservation. So it will not be cheap without reservation. Our meeting is going on in this regard. Our position is clear that we need some time to decide on this. We will take a decision after talking to everyone." He also clarified that. 

We also tried for reservation during Mahavikas Aghadi government. I was also part of that government but it was our tragedy that the Chief Minister did not have time to meet us at that time. We tried to express our opinion repeatedly at that time as well. He has said that the stand that the Maratha community should get sustainable reservation was also at that time and is firm on it today. He has made it clear that he wants permanent educational and economic reservation that will not be cancelled. 

"A misunderstanding has arisen among the leaders of the Maratha community that I malign the Maratha community. But they are also my brothers and I apologize to them too. I am not changing my position after the change of power. We want reservation and strive for it." This is what he said.

The issue of Maratha reservation should be taken out now and those who are spoiling the environment should be identified. Why was he silent for so long?
