Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan has said the Congress-led government will reap benefits of its successfully implemented schemes for the people, during the upcoming general elections. “The Congress-led government introduced Food Security Bill. It brought RTI. The MNREGA is a classic example of providing employment to the needy and downtrodden and the party has always ensured that the poor and needy are uplifted and brought into the mainstream,” Chavan said while addressing a rally last evening at Bhiwandi.
These schemes, which have been implemented successfully and have benefited people in the state and country, will speak for itself and bring in victory for the Congress, he said highlighting the government’s achievements.
However, the opposition parties including BJP and Shiv Sena have no such schemes and programmes for the citizens of Maharashtra and the country, he said. These parties did nothing than promoting differences among the citizens for their sake, Chavan alleged.
The chief minister said he had come to seek people’s votes for the government at the Centre and will also strive for their support during the state Assembly elections, slated later this year.
