The Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) has filed a police complaint and all bus services have been suspended in Jalna. MSRTC’s Depot Manager of Ambad Taluka has also lodged a complaint at a local station demanding action against the accused who set the bus on fire.  Jalna collector Srikrushna Panchal said there is a possibility that quota supporters may arrive at Antarwali Sarati village in Ambad Taluka of Jalna, where the activist has been staging a hunger strike and stop him from going to Mumbai.

The curfew order said there is a possibility that traffic on Dhule – Mumbai highway and Tehsils near Ambad may get affected. The collector said government offices, schools, movement on national highways, milk distribution, media and hospitals have been exempted from the order. Maharashtra Congress leader Vijay Wadettiwar appealed to Maharashtra reservation activist Manoj Jarange Patil to protest peacefully and stated that he should ensure that nobody is harmed and law and order should be maintained in the area.

He further added everybody knows who has groomed Manoj Jarange, and whose people used to visit Manoj Patil. Maharashtra government ministers used to meet the activists. He said they are reaping what they had sown in the past.

The Maharshtra Legislative assembly (lower house) unanimously passed the Maratha reservation Bill tabled in February, which intended to extend 10% reservation to Marathas above the 50% cap.
