Senior BJP leader Devendra Fadanvis slammed the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra on Wednesday for its "failure" on all fronts, saying the Shiv Sena-led dispensation was operating 'Ram bharose' (at God's mercy). Speaking at the 'Jal Akrosh Morcha,' a BJP-organized protest march here to highlight local water problems, he also accused MVA ministers of collecting commission and engaging in extortion.
Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has not visited Mantralaya (the state secretariat) in two years, so he is unaware of the pain and sufferings of ordinary people and farmers. The MVA government is running on 'Ram bharose.' "It has failed on every front," Fadnavis said.
"The MVA ministers are preoccupied with 'takkewari, vasuli, and malpani'" (commission and extortion). "The government halted the previous BJP government's development schemes and projects in the state," the former chief minister claimed. The MVA government did not spend a single paisa on the development of the Marathwada region, particularly Jalna district, according to Fadnavis, who added that the previous BJP government had initiated the Marathwada Water Grid project, which could solve drinking water and irrigation problems.
"However, the MVA regime did not release a single paisa for the project. The region's water woes would have been solved if this scheme had been implemented. The current government has put an end to the Marathwada Water Grid Project "alleged the state Assembly's Leader of Opposition.
He also claimed that the Thackeray-led government did not extend the Marathwada Statutory Development Board's term after it expired in 2020, leaving the governor with no authority to sanction funds for the region. "If the government does not wake up and solve the water problems, people will vote it out," Fadnavis said. He also accused the state government of not spending money sanctioned by the Narendra Modi government under the latter's Jal Jeevan Mission to address water shortages in the state.
