The MES organized Seema Parishad (Convention of Marathis) just ended at Subhahs Maidan (Lele ground) today evening. The event was a crowd puller of sorts and number of people attending were in good numbers and same was the case with Police.
Jayantrao Patil Minister for Rural Development (Maharashtra), Subhash Desai, leader of Shiv Sena, N D Patil and various others leaders spoke on the occasion and asked the Marathi’s not to think they are alone and Maharashtra is behind them.
There were small incidents of trouble created by so called Kannada activists at the venue who were beaten up and police had resort to a very mild lathi charge. All was peaceful and no untoward incident was reported.
The city buses were off the road as a measure of precaution which caused a lot of hardships to school going children and people going for work.
