Solapur: Raising the issue of a skewed male-female ratio in Maharashtra to a pedestal, bachelors of Solapur district march up in wedding costumed, on horses, with bands to the collectors’ office.

The ‘Bridegroom Morcha’ took place on Wednesday. The Morcha later on submitted a memorandum to the district collectors’ office seeking strict implementation of the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PCPNDT) Act in order to enable the deteriorating situation of the male-female ratio in Maharashtra.

Additionally, the memorandum demanded the arrangement of brides for all the bachelors who participated in the morcha.

Jyoti Kranti Parishad organized this event. The founder of this group Ramesh Baraskar said, “People may mock this morcha, but the grim reality is that youth of marriageable age are not getting brides just because the male-female ratio is skewed in the state.”

He claimed Maharashtra’s sex ratio was 889 girls per 1,000 boys.

Further Baraskar held the government responsible for the male-female ratio disparity and said, “This inequality exists because of female foeticide and the government is responsible for this disparity.”
