Aurangabad (Maharashtra), Sep 9: City BJP unit will take out a 'Jago Morcha' at divisional commissionerate, where the proposed Cabinet meeting is likely to be held on Sep 17, to raise the various issues of the Marathwada region, like load-shedding, unemployment, famine and suicides of farmers. Addressing a news conference on Tuesday, Sep 9 former minister Haribhau Bagade said around one lakh people will participate in the morcha. He said not a single decision taken during the last Cabinet meeting here was implemented so far.
