No Maharashtra bandh, no Kranti Morcha on January 10: Police
One of the messages circulating on social media

Days after Dalit protestors brought the state to a standstill, a state of panic ensued after a new message from prominent Maratha group ‘Sakal Maratha Samaj’ calling for another ‘Maharashtra Bandh’ on January 10 started circulating on social media.

 

However, Thane police has now clarified that the message is fake and that efforts are being made to find and take action against those responsible for circulating the messages on platforms like WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter etc.

The clarification came after Sakal Maratha Samaj and Maharashtra Kranti Morcha denied any involvement with the bandh call. The latter also wrote to Thane police demanding action against miscreants who were spreading rumours on social media.
