Fadnavis targets MVA govt on issues of farmers, Maratha quota



BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis on Saturday accused the Uddhav Thackeray-led Maharashtra government of ignoring the plight farmers in the state and failing on the Maratha reservation issue.

The former chief minister said the government has failed to provide financial aid to farmers.

"The Thackeray government has failed in providing financial assistance to farmers. The government has completely ignored their plight. Cotton, soybean crops got destroyed due to pest attack, but no help was provided to farmers," Fadnavis said in a press conference.

"This government has miserably failed in Maratha reservation as well," he alleged.

The BJP leader also said that he had not seen any chief minister in Maharashtra, other than Uddhav Thackeray, who threatened the opposition "so much", and said his recent interview to 'Saamana' (Shiv Sena mouthpiece) did not befit the constitutional post he held. (PTI)
