Nagpur: Opposition boycotted the customary tea meeting hosted by the Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on the eve of winter session. Leader of opposition Devendra Fadnavis said they have no interest to have a 'chai pe charcha' with those insult Veer Savarkar. He attacked Shiv Sena for taking a soft stand on the issue to remain in power.
Fadnavis, who was accompanied by other opposition leaders, attacked the Maha Vikas Aghadi government for staying a number of developmental projects undertaken by the BJP led government. ''There is a total discord among Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress and there are no ministers to reply our answers. The government should not waste further time but immediately implement its promise to pay compensation worth Rs 25,000 per hectare for arable land and Rs 50,000 per hectare for horticultural land because of the damage caused by untimely rain,’’ he said.
Fadnavis said that Thackeray had promised complete loan waiver before the assembly poll and after the formation of MVA government, ‘’It is time for Thackeray led government to act fast and fulfil its promise,’’ he noted.
Fadnavis alleged that the government is not serious about the winter session as the ministers, who were allotted portfolios, are not sure about their fate.
On the government’s decision to stay various projects initiated by the previous government during 2014-19, Fandanvis termed it ‘’sthatigi sarkar’’ (government that is staying every project). He claimed that the government’s functioning has come to a halt and it will adversely impact the development of Maharashtra which is the leading state in attracting investments across the globe.
