Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Wednesday said that his government would fight any legal challenges  in order to bring reservation for the Maratha community in existence.

Addressing a meeting in Navi Mumbai, he said the BJP-led government's decision to provide quota to the community in jobs and educational institutions was a well thought out move and not taken in haste.

"Be in reservation or education or employment we are going to stand firmly behind the community," Fadnavis said.

"We are fully prepared to fight it in courts," he said.

The CM said banks should give loans to youths from the community to set up their ventures.

He said in politics and social life one has to digest poison and give `amrit' (divine syrup) to people like Lord Shiva.

"I have been doing the same for the last four years," Fadnavis said.
