Default Any issues due to the sugarcane stir in the Kolhapur-Satara belt?

This Monday, driving down to Goa from Pune became a 10 hour affair, with 3 stoppages along the way because of rasta roko by farmers agitating for better sugarcane prices. While it was peaceful, and traffic was restored after some time, there were news of things turning violent in Sangli and some areas around Kolhapur.

I am planning on driving back to Pune tomorrow morning from Goa, and was wondering if it was safe to take the usual Goa-Amboli-Azra-Nipani-Kolhapur-Satara-Pune route, or whether I should take the longer (and much slower) option of taking NH17 all the way to Mangaon and then entering Pune via Mulshi.

Any recent updates from anyone in the area?

No fresh incidents after that.I know of people who have driven Bangalore-Delhi yesterday and they passed by without any problems.If you hear of problems,even then take the Kankavli-Radhanagari or the Gaganbawda route to Kolhapur and then connect to NH4,

No trouble at all. I used the same route yesterday 15th Nov (goa- sawantwadi - amboli- ajara- gadinglaj- sankeshwar - kolhapur- Pune- Mumbai).
There was police presence on the highway at 3-4 places between kolhapur and satara.

Amboli to sankeshwar via ajara and gadinglaj was 3 hrs. Sankeshwar to Mumbai (panvel) on NH4 was 5 hrs. After that panvel to malad was 2.5 hrs and this is variable depending on traffic; same stretch being covered in 1 hr on my mumbai-goa leg!
