Leader of Opposition in Maharashtra Legislative Council, Dhananjay Munde demanded that Shiv Sena must quit the BJP-led state government rather than asking its legislators to take an aggressive stand on the issue of farm loan waiver.
“Legislators of Shiv Sena are on their feet in the well of the House demanding loan waiver while the party ministers are enjoying power. What to make of all this. This is double standards,” Munde said in a series of tweets.
The call to Sena legislators to take an aggressive stand is a farce, the NCP leader alleged.
Opposition Congress and NCP are pursuing the demand for loan waiver and we challenge the Shiv Sena to join the fight, he tweeted.
“Instead of asking its legislators to take an aggressive stand, the party (Sena) should ask its ministers to quit the government,” Munde added.
The demand for loan waiver of farmers has dominated the ongoing budget session of the State Legislature, paralysing proceedings of both the Houses, which saw them being adjourned without transacting any business for days together.
Initially, Shiv Sena joined the Opposition Congress and NCP in the farm loan waiver demand. Later even BJP legislators came in support.
The budget session of the State Legislative Assembly, which began on March 6, reconvenes tomorrow after a four-day break.
