Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde on Monday said that the state government is committed to give reservation for the Marathas and however he did not spell out the exact quota that is being planned.

Following this, Maratha leaders agitating in Jalna announced that they would continue their protests till “the government orders are dispatched”.

Addressing a joint media conference with Deputy Chief Ministers Devendra Fadnavis and Ajit Pawar, Shinde said that he presided over a high-level meeting on the reservation issue today in which several points were discussed including the Maratha agitation across the state, the tragic police action against the protestors in Jalna on September 1 and others.

“I also spoken with Maratha leader Manoj Jarange Patil and have assured him that the reservation to Marathas will be given and we are working on it… Some records are available and other old records have to be retrieved which takes time. We are favourable and committed to giving the quota,” declared Shinde.
