Consider It Blessing, Says Dhangar Community Leader After Turmeric On Minister

After protesters demanding reservation for the Dhangar community smeared turmeric on revenue minister Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil, Gopichand Padalkar, a leader representing the Dhangar community in the BJP and member of the Maharashtra State Council, requested Minister Vikhe Patil to interpret their use of "Bhandara" (Turmeric Powder) as a positive gesture symbolising the blessing of Lord 'Khandoba,' whom the Dhangar community worships.
