The opposition Maha Vikas Aghadi’s ‘Halla Bol’ protest march against the Eknath Shinde-led Maharashtra government over various issues began in Mumbia on Saturday.

The foot march, which began from a company near J J Hospital at Byculla around noon, will conclude at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus in south Mumbai.

Some of the major projects were taken away from Maharashtra and given to Gujarat, and BJP won the elections there. The people of Maharashtra will give a strong message to the BJP with their vote, Congress leader Balasaheb Thorat Told ANI at MVA protest against Shinde government.

The protest has been organised to target the Eknath Shinde-Bharatiya Janata Party government in the state on issues including the “insult” of Maratha warrior king Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and social reformers Mahatma Jyotiba Phule and Savitribai Phule by Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari and others through their remarks; the Maharashtra-Karnataka border dispute and projects from the state being shifted elsewhere.

The MVA protest is being seen as an attempt to rally the allies after the Uddhav Thackeray-led alliance government was toppled in June this year.

Leaders and workers of the Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray), Nationalist Congress Party and Congress had started gathering near the J J Hospital since morning. When the march started around noon, they were seen carrying banners, placards and images of Shivaji Maharaj and the Phules.

Talking to reporters before the march, senior NCP leader Sunil Tatkare said Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has insulted Maharashtra by staking claim to some parts of the state, even as the Shinde government has chosen not to react.

The people of Maharashtra will not tolerate anything said against Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Dr Savitribai Phule & other great personalities. Our message to the Shinde govt is that they shouldn’t try to change the history of the state, NCP leader Dilip Walse Patil told ANI
