Maratha ‘silent march’ in Nagpur on Oct 25, Kunbis excluded

maratha-march-nagpurNagpur: A “silent march” will be taken out in Nagpur on October 25 as part of statewide mobilisation by Marathas for their demands like reservation in jobs and education, but the Kunbis, a dominant community in Vidarbha region, have been excluded from the agitation.

With cracks seem to be developing between the two factions of the community, the Sakal Maratha Samaj, which is organising the silent march in the city, has excluded the Kunbis from the protest.

On October 25, the march will start from Reshimbagh and trek through Cotton Market, Tekdi Road and Sitabuldi to reach Kasturchand Park. From there, it will proceed to the district collector’s office with young girls carrying a memorandum of demands.

It will be a silent march and follow all norms like being non-political and maintaining cleanliness that the community is adhering to in different cities, the organisers said.
