All the Congress ministers were present at the meeting, including Industries Minister Narayan Rane, who headed the committee which has proposed 20 per cent reservations in jobs and education for the political dominant community.

The meeting was held at Chavan's official bungalow, 'Varsha', in south Mumbai.

The demand for reservations for Maratha community and other issues have acquired a new urgency in view of the coming Assembly elections and the disastrous performance of Congress in the Lok Sabha polls.
