Spirit of Mumbaikars
Mumbai has witnessed traffic snarls and waterlogging as very heavy rains had lashed into the big city. Life comes to an end in the city because the Mumbaikars get struck up on the roads as well as on the stations and trains. With numerous roads shut& local train services in several areas were found suspended, people in Mumbai were completed stranded. However, the Mumbai police & traffic police were on their foot providing updated information to the citizens & controlling traffic, where Mumbai showed its spirit for people to come out to help each and everyone caught up in the difficult circumstances.
Most of the Mumbaikars have also posted the messages in the social media to help the people who have stuck in their locations to call them for assistance. Some of the citizens also shared their numbers in social media thus asking those who got stuck up with rains to call for assistance. In addition to that, the dabbawalas of Mumbai city were on their toes to deliver food to the people on the roads. In the meantime, the Gurudwaras of the Mumbai also come forward to assist Mumbaikars.
A message was circulated among the Mumbaikars revealing that all the gurudwaras of Mumbai are found open for shelter and Langar for everyone who got stuck with any part of the city. In addition to that, the other message was circulated by saying, if anybody needs food or protection in Byculla west area can come to Hindustani Masjid opposite station. Arrangements were carried out for the needy people. People belonging to various religions are invited. The Mumbai police have saluted for the spirit of Mumbai by sharing messages all over social media. They appreciate how citizens come forward to assist each other.
Why Protests Made By The Maratha Kranti Morcha?
The Maratha community campaigning for reservation in the state for educational institutions and government jobs got violent later. The protesters seem to torch the ambulances and police vehicles in Aurangabad. The Maratha Kranti Samaj is one of the outfits which lead the agitation of so-called Mumbai Bandh on 25th July 2018.
At first, the protest began in 2016, after the teenager of the community was raped & killed by the men from Dalit community. Consequently, Marathas started to do silent protest march thus demanding for reservation and amendments to preventing atrocities of the Dalits Act. The agitation turned violent because the 27-year old protestor purposefully committed suicide by jumping into the river of the Godavari in Aurangabad district on 23rd July. The deceased person was identified as Kakasaheb Shinde.
By following this incident, the Maratha outfits had attacked the ambulances and police vehicles and hence force the authorities to eliminate internet services. In order to calm down the protestors who demand the reservation in the government jobs & education under the OBC quota, the Maharashtra government has provided a circular for the 2nd time by directing all the colleges that they do not charge up to full fees for the candidates of Maratha community through the Chhatrapati Shahu Maharaj Scholarship.
