The procession had the backing of of all the political parties, including the NDA constituents Shiv Sena and Republican Party of India.
Mumbai on Monday was engulfed by a ‘Maratha storm’ as lakhs of the politically powerful community made an entry into the city with their first and biggest ‘mook morcha’ (silent procession) demanding reservation in jobs and education for them.
The Maratha Kranti Morcha that began with processions from August 9, 2016 in 57 different parts of Maharashtra. It will culminate in the presentation of a memorandum to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.

The government, police, the BMC and other agencies were fully geared as participants of the mega morcha started trickling in from different parts of the State since Monday night.
While the authorities anticipated a participation of between 500,000-800,000 Marathas from across the State, the organisers feel it will be the mother of all morchas so far, with the figure crossing three million.

The demands
“Thereafter, a delegation of Maratha leaders will meet the Chief Minister and submit a memorandum listing the various demands. Though there are many demands, the stress will be on education and job reservation for the community members,” Mr. Rane, a former Chief Minister.
He had headed a special committee appointed by the previous Congress-Nationalist Congress Party regime to study the socio-economic conditions of the Maratha community.
Wednesday’s procession has bagged the support of all the political parties with even the NDA constituents, the Shiv Sena and the Republican Party of India (A), announcing their backing late on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the Maratha brigade which trooped into Mumbai from the five entry points, besides the railways, resulted in huge traffic jams in Mumbai and adjacent districts of Thane, Raigad and Palghar.
They have been reaching the state capital by trains, private vehicles, trucks, tempos and even two-wheelers waving Maratha flags and sporting bright orange turbans, entering through railway stations and the entry points.
The Mumbai Police have geared up with over 7,000 personnel, including commandos, armed police, cops in plainclothes, assigned for providing security duties during the procession.
The police plan to make big use of the social media like Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, FM radios and other media to provide updates on traffic to the millions of office-goers in the morning and evening peak hours.
All schools and colleges in south Mumbai were ordered shut by Education Minister Vinod Tawde on the day to ensure students were not inconvenienced during the procession.
