Mumbai: BJP leader and Maharashtra school education minister Vinod Tawde said Saturday that Congress and NCP leaders in the state have lost people’s trust. They do not have faith in themselves too, he said. “Maharashtra Congress chief Ashok Chavan says nobody listens to him and (NCP supremo) Sharad Pawar never does what he says,” Tawde said. The leaders of the BJP and its ally Shiv Sena, on the other hand, practise what they preach, he said.
“Sharad Pawar said that (NCP leader and his nephew Ajit Pawar’s son) Parth will not contest Lok Sabha election, but now Parth is contesting,” Tawde pointed out. Chavan was unable to handle his own constituency and his supporters were leaving the party, Tawde claimed. Raju Shetti of the Swabhimani Shetkari Sanghtana is accusing Union government of disappointing farmers, but the Modi-led govt has done immense work for the betterment of farmers by implementing recommendations of the Swaminathan Commission, the BJP leader said.
