The Fadnavis government will complete three years in office 31st October 2017. Ahead of this, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has asked his ministers and bureaucrats to submit Key Result Areas (KRAs) to receive a feedback about the work done by them in the past three years. According to sources, the CM wants his ministers to showcase what different work they have done as compared to the one performed by ministers of erstwhile Democratic Front government. The government already is receiving flak from the opposition for its failure to tackle farmer suicides, drought problems, unemployment and pending irrigation projects. Shiv Sena too is attacking the policies of the government. It becomes a challenge for the government to keep its ally Sena happy which is always on the attacking mode. Thus the road ahead for the government looks tough as it will have to work overtime to complete pending infrastructure projects, maintain transparency and provide good governance.
Former Chief Minister of Maharashtra Prithviraj Chavan said, “Already Prakash Mehta, Subhash Desai and other bureaucrats are facing corruption charges. By demanding KRA’s from minister the Chief Minister is only trying to keep a check on his ministers. There is a possibility of cabinet reshuffle. Even though three years have passed ever since the Fadnavis government has come to power but projects like Dr Ambedkar memorial, sea link, Mumbai-Nagpur highway, Chhatrapati Shivaji statue is yet to see the light of the day. The government has failed to deliver and it must do self-introspection.”
Anil Desai, Shiv Sena Rajya Sabha MP said, “The Chief Minister should not demand KRAs from his ministers instead he should remain accountable to the people. Citizens will give a befitting reply to the government soon. The government has failed to resolve the problems faced by agricultural sector. They must provide information about how much amount has been sanctioned for farm loan waiver.”
MNS leader Bala Nandgaonkar said, “Shiv Sena and BJP should fulfill the promises made to people instead of asking KRAs from its own ministers. The CM should provide information to people about the work done by his government. He always claims that his government is corruption free but many of his ministers like Pankaja Munde, Prakash Mehta, Radheshyam Mopalwar, Vinod Tawde, Rajkumar Badole, Dinesh Waghmare are tainted. He must first initiate action against them instead of demanding KRAs.”
BJP MLA Ram Kadam said, “It is the right of the government to demand KRA’s of its minister. Just because the Chief Minister is asking his ministers to furnish KRAs doesn’t mean that he is going ahead with the cabinet reshuffle.”
