Nagpur: After a break of two days, when the Winter Session commenced its second week on Monday December 14, 2015, many organizations took out rallies or Morchas to press their demands.
The Maharashtra Rajya Shikshak Parishad, Maharashtra Rajya Nurses Va Arogya Karmachari Sanghatna, Maharashtra Rajya Gram Panchayat Karamchari Union, Maharashtra Rajya Granthalaya Sangh and Maharashtra Rajya Sarvajanik Granthalaya Karamchari Sangh, Maharashtra Rajya Yuva Patrakar Sangh Va Maharashtra Patrakar-Sampadak Bahuudeshiya Sangh, Chandrapur, Maharashtra Rajya Jooni Pension Hakka Sanghatan and All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen were some of the organizations who took out Morchas to attract the attention of the concerned Ministers.
However, the local citizens and road users including two and four-wheeler vehicle users found it hard to reach their places of work, the school and colleges since the police officials had blocked many important roads with perpetually busy traffic since these organizations were either on the way to the Morris T-Point, Tekdi Road, Road from Nagpur Railway Station to Shrimohini Complex or were blocked at these places.
One could find traffic jams in almost all roads that passed near the Vidhan Sabha or were located on parallel roads. One could feel the irritation of the road users as they were blowing their horns endlessly to make the person move another inch.
The participants of these Morchas behave sometimes in a very arrogant and illogical manner. The slogans that, these participants shout in the Morchas are often is not heard by anyone apart from the media personnel, police officials and other local citizens.
Some of the very enthusiastic participant attempt weird stunts. One of them was a 30-35 year old man identified as Kailash Raghunath Kale, who is an Assistant Teacher and was pressing for the demand to implement the old pension plan which was revised in 2005 causing loss to these workers. This man climbed the roof of a building by holding the pipe. This building which was situated hit opposite to Morris T-Point. However, alert police personnel who were watching the Morchas immediately ran after him and climbed the building and nabbed him before he could attempt suicide. He was taken to Sitabuldi Police Station and kept under watch.
