The 86th Akhil Bharatiya Marathi Sahitya Sammelan, which concluded at Chiplun on Sunday, resolved to urge the government to provide adequate water for the thirsty Marathwada region.
They also made resolutions pertaining to development and progress of the literary field.
The former president of Akhil Bharatiya Marathi Sahitya Mahamandal Kautikrao Thale-Patil proposed the resolution and Dada Gore supported it.
Interestingly, literary meet president Nagnath Kottapalle had also urged Union minister Sharad Pawar and Sunil Tatkare to provide water to the Marathwada region.
The resolution mentions that there is opposition to the drinking water provision for the Marathwada region and the government should take immediate steps in this regard.
As a part of every year’s tradition, this year too the literary meet passed a resolution expressing concern over the plight of the Marathi speaking population staying in the Karnataka border region of Belgaum. However, this year’s resolution had a slight change as it asked the state government to appoint an expert with the study of language issues to assist the legal experts appointed by the government to plead the case in the apex court.
