Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Thursday slammed Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray, without taking his name, by stating that a man who did not come out of his house during his tenure as chief minister was now talking about what he has done and what he would have done had he remained on the post.

The former chief minister should sit home and write essays, Fadnavis said.

"Sometimes we have to write essays on what if I was a bird, what if I was a cricketer, etc. There is a person in this state who says I have done this, I would have done this if I was chief minister. He did not come out of his house when he was CM for two-and-half-years," Fadnavis said in a swipe at Thackeray.

"He should just sit home and write essays. We will serve the people," said Fadnavis, who was in Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar for the groundbreaking ceremony of the Gangapur lift irrigation project in Arapur.

The project will bring 25,000 hectares of land in 40 villages under irrigation, with water being supplied through drip, making it the only project of its type, Fadnavis said.

"The project was sanctioned in September 2023 and we had resolved to start work on it by January. Funds have been made available. We will also sanction a solar power plant to provide electricity for this project," the Deputy CM said.

A total of ₹5,000 crores has been sanctioned for irrigation projects in the last 18 months, he said, adding water from the Krishna river valley will come to Marathwada in 18 months.
