Save Merit Save Nation Rally in Nagpur 

In the viral video, we can hear a person is announcing that 'Save Merit Save Nation’ rally in Nagpur witnessed huge participation of the common public. The rally was to oppose the government policy.

We also found a report by about this massive rally. In order to push forth their concern over the caste-based reservation and raise their demand before policymakers, ‘Save Merit Save Nation’ forum had organized a silent march on August 25 from Yashwant Stadium to Kasturchand Park in Nagpur. Dr. Sanjay Deshpande pointed out that the ‘Save Merit Save Nation’ movement started soon after the state government decided to extend the limit of the reservation to 74% without considering the loss to open category. “We are neither against any caste nor against the 50% constitutional reservation. But due to additional reservation, nearly 40% of open category students have been left with less than 25% of the seats. This is an injustice.

Conclusion: The original video is from Save Merit Save Nation rally in Nagpur which was organised to oppose an increase in the caste-based reservation.
