Villagers stage protest against mechanised dredging in Thane creek

According to the news agency, the protestors took out 150 boats to the middle of the creek between Kasheli and Gaimukh, showed black flags and shouted slogans.According to the protestors, 20,000 to 25,000 people, including locals and tribal labourers, depend on manual sand mining, and they were afraid of losing their livelihood as mechanised dredgers were being permitted to extract sand, as per the PTI.

Meanwhile, activist ManojJarange on Monday said he will set out on a tour of Maharashtra after the Diwali festival to meet Marathas and make them aware about the issue of reservation for the community, according to the PTI.

The activist earlier visited parts of western Maharashtra before he went on a hunger strike last month during the second phase of agitation for the Maratha quota.“We will not focus on any criticism. We are asking for the right of Marathas,” the activist said.
