Internet Suspended, Curfew Imposed: Maharashtra Authorities Respond to Maratha Quota Agitation.


Internet Service Shutdown in Aurangabad : In response to the escalating tensions surrounding the Maratha quota agitation led by activist Manoj Jarange, authorities in Maharashtra have taken decisive actions. These actions include the suspension of internet services and the imposition of curfew in certain districts.

On Monday, internet services were suspended in Maharashtra's Jalna, Aurangabad, and Beed districts as a precautionary measure to maintain law and order. Officials cited concerns over potential unrest fueled by rumors circulating on social media platforms.

Additionally, a curfew was imposed in Ambad taluka of Jalna district, effective Monday midnight. This measure aims to prevent potential law and order issues amid the ongoing agitation. The decision was made in anticipation of supporters gathering at Antarwali Sarati village, where Jarange has been staging a hunger strike.
