The agitation was organised to raise demands like providing food grains on orange ration cards, providing pulses along with rice and wheat on all ration cards, providing food grains to all irrespective of whether the ration card is Aadhar-linked or not etc. “Also, we protested against regularisation charges on residents of unauthorised layouts,” said Datke.

The CP said, “We had duly informed them about imposition of Section 144 and asked them not to proceed with the agitation programme.”
