NCP leader Dhananjay Munde took a dig at the BJP-Shiv Sena government saying one year under their rule is the most unsuccessful that any government had till date in the state’s history.
“The state failed on all the fronts and NCP would protest against the government for one week starting October 25,” Munde, who is the Leader of Opposition in Maharashtra Legislative Council, told.
The Devendra Fadnavis-led government completes a year in office on October 31. Shiv Sena later joined the government.
Munde said false assurances were given by the BJP before the elections and not a single promise had been fulfilled.
He said BJP established the ‘Kendirya Krushi Mulya Ayog’ (agriculture evaluation commission) nine months ago but no one knows till date who heads it or are the directors of the commission declared.
“Only one meeting of the commission was held and so fair price to the agricultural produce can not be given and this is a major factor for the suicide of the farmers in Marathwada region and elsewhere in the state,” the LoP alleged.
Munde further said the assurance to make state toll free is also yet to fulfilled.
“The farmers were told that they would be given Rs. 1,500 per hector as compensation for the destructed crops and also 24,000 villages were declared drought affected but no measures to overcome them were initiated by the state government,” he added.
He claimed BJP had promised before election that in the first Cabinet meeting the government would approve reservation to the Dhangars (Shepard’s) in the ST category, but they took no decision.
