MVA partners slam BJP over Gujarat CM’s road show

A day after BJP accused the Shiv Sena led Maha Vikas Aghadi government for facilitating migration of businesses from Maharashtra to West Bengal, the Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress lashed out at BJP over the Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel’s road show in the city inviting investors for the upcoming 10th edition of Vibrant Gujarat summit.

Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said, ‘’ When West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee met industrialists in Mumbai, BJP’s stomach got upset as it alleged that she was here to rob industries from Maharashtra. Today Gujarat CM is meeting industrialists with half of his cabinet and organising roadshow in Mumbai. Vibrant Gujarat by scrapping Mumbai?’’

State Congress general secretary Sachin Sawant said after Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister, he started the process of taking Maharashtra’s industries to Gujarat. ‘’By taking Mumbai’s rightful International Finance Center to Gujarat the highest foreign direct investment was attracted by the BJP ruled state that would naturally come to the Maharashtra. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has said that Gift City will be the main gateway to the investment. Maharashtra should foil Centre’s attempt to take away Mumbai’s status as the country’s financial and commercial capital,’’ he added.

State NCP spokesman Clyde Crasto took a dig at BJP legislator Ashish Shelar in a tweet in Gujarati said that ‘’ Brother Ashish Shelar, do you know how to speak Gujarati? If you don’t know, then learn, your party has no confidence, one day you too will be taken to Gujarat.’’
