Maharashtra Petrol Pump propose Strike on 7 September

Petrol pump dealers in Maharashtra has proposed to go on a one day strike on September 7 to press for their demand of relief from Local Body Tax (LBT). All Maharashtra Petrol Dealers' Association (FAMPEDA) President Uday Lodh said that the government differentiates between other traders and fuel retailers. Petrol pump retailers have to pay LBT while other traders have been exempted from it. "This is why more than 800 petrol and diesel pumps within 25 municipal corporations will be on strike on September 7," he said. Incidentally, the Maharashtra government had exempted traders having an annual turnover below Rs 50 crore from paying LBT across the state from August 1. According to the government, more than 99 per cent of traders benefited from the decision.

Maharashtra celebrates Dahi Handi

Maharashtra celebrates Dahi Handi on Sunday, marking the birth anniversary of Lord Krishna. Teams of people will form human pyramids to reach high hanging handis or pot of curd. The Maharashtra government had recently made the activity an adventure sport, barring anyone below 12 from participating. Ironically, some of Mumbai's biggest patrons of Dahi handi, mostly politicians, have chosen to stay away from this year's event, to express disappointment about, well believe it or not, heightened safety regulations.

Maharashtra curbs criticism of politicians

Criticism of a politician or a public servant, in the form of words, signs or representations, can attract sedition charges under Section 124 A of the Indian Penal Code if it shows them as representatives of the Union or the State governments, says the Government Resolution issued by the Home Department of Maharashtra. The guidelines in the resolution say criticism in this form, which may cause disaffection with, or enmity and disloyalty to, the Centre or the State government will be treated as sedition. This comes after a “submission” made by the Advocate-General in the Bombay High Court in a case involving political activist and cartoonist Aseem Trivedi that the Home Department would issue these guidelines in the form of a circular to all policemen

हुतात्मा चौक, मुंबई | हुतात्मा चौकाचा इतिहास

हुतात्मा चौक “Martyrs’ Square” हा मुंबईच्या फोर्ट विभागातील एक ऐतिहासिक चौक आहे. या चौकाचे जुने नाव फ्लोरा फाउंटन असे होते. संयुक्त महाराष्ट्र चळवळीतील हुतात्म्यांचे स्मारक, फ्लोरा फाउंटन कारंजे आणि कोपऱ्यातील दादाभाई नौरोजी यांचा पुतळा इत्यादी स्मृतिशिल्पे या चौकाची ठळक वैशिष्ट्ये आहेत.  इ.स. १६६८-१७१६ या कालखंडात ब्रिटिश ईस्ट इंडिया कंपनीने मुंबई बेटांवर एक किल्ला बांधून पूर्ण केला.
हुतात्मा चौकाचा इतिहास:  इ.स.१९५६ च्या नोव्हेंबरातील २१ तारखेची ती संध्याकाळ होती. सकाळपासून फ्लोरा फाउंटनच्या परिसरात तणावाचे वातावरण होते. राज्य पुनर्रचना आयोगाने महाराष्ट्राला मुंबई देण्याचे नाकारले होते. मराठी बाण्याची मुंबई या अन्यायाने खवळून उठली होती. सर्वत्र छोट्यामोठ्या सभांमधून त्याचा जळजळीत निषेध होत होता. याचा संघटित परिणाम म्हणून कामगार आणि पांढरपेशांचा एक विशाल मोर्चा, तेव्हाच्या विवेकशून्य सरकारचा निषेध करण्यासाठी फ्लोरा फाऊंटनासमोरील चौकात येणार होता. दुपार टळल्यानंतर, म्हणजे मुंबईतल्या शंभर-सव्वाशे कापडगिरण्यांमधील, कामगारांची चारची पहिली पाळी संपल्यानंतर गिरणगावातून मोर्चा निघेल, असा अंदाज होता. पण त्याला छेद देत पांढरपेशांचा प्रचंड जनसमुदाय, एका बाजूने चर्चगेट स्थानकाकडून व दुसऱ्या बाजूने बोरीबंदरकडून गगनभेदी घोषणा देत, फ्लोरा फाउंटनकडे जमू लागला. हा मोर्चा पोलिसी ताकद वापरून उधळला जाईल, असा अंदाज होताच. कारण फोर्ट भागात जमाव आणि सभाबंदी जारी केली होती. सर्व कार्यालयांतील महिला कर्मचाऱ्यांना घरी पाठविले होते. जमावबंदीचा भंग करून, मुंबईकर फ्लोरा फाउंटनाच्या चौकात सत्याग्रहासाठी ठाण मांडून बसले होते. त्यानंतर थोड्या वेळातच विपरीत घडले. सत्याग्रहींना उधळून लावण्यासाठी लाठीमार करण्यात आला. मात्र, तरीही ते चौकातून हटत नाहीत म्हटल्यावर पोलिसांना गोळीबाराचा आदेश देण्यात आला. मुंबई राज्याचे तत्कालीन मुख्यमंत्री मोरारजी देसाई यांचे “दिसताक्षणी गोळ्या” घालण्याचे पोलिसांना आदेश होते. प्रेक्षणीय फ्लोरा फाउंटनाच्या कारंज्यातील पाण्यासारख्याच शांततापूर्ण आंदोलन करणाऱ्या निदर्शकांच्या रक्ताच्या चिळकांड्या काळ्याभोर रस्त्यावर उडू लागल्या. संयुक्त महाराष्ट्राच्या लढ्यात जानेवारी, इ.स. १९५७ पर्यंत जे १०५ आंदोलक हुतात्मे झाले, त्या मालिकेची ही सुरुवात होती. या सर्व हुतात्म्यांच्या बलिदानापुढे व मराठी माणसाच्या आंदोलनामुळे काँग्रेसी सरकारला नमते घेऊन १ मे, इ.स. १९६० रोजी मुंबईसह संयुक्त महाराष्ट्राची स्थापना करावी लागली. त्यानंतर इ.स. १९६५मध्ये त्या जागी हुतात्मा स्मारकाची उभारणी झाली.
