Raut trying to hide MVA govt’s failures: Maha BJP chief

Mumbai (Bombay): Maharashtra(MH) BJP chief Chandrakant Patil on Sun. charged Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut of trying to conceal the failures of the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) govt by deceiving citizens over the danger to the survival of the Uddhav Thackeray-led dispensation.

Raut, in his own weekly column in Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ on Sun. indirectly charged the BJP of scheduling to topple the state govt by Oct & have its own members appointed to the Legislative Council from that governor’s quota.

“Sanjay Raut today once again made a lame trying to imply that the BJP is trying to topple this govt by Oct. In fact although, Raut is scared that the NCP, Congress & Shiv Sena govt is falling because of the internal fights which were happening between the 3 parties,” Patil stated.

“He’s just demonstrating his own fear to the citizens of Maharashtra(MH) by creating a shallow accusations over the BJP,” the previous Maharashtra(MH) minister stated.

In a time when Maharashtra(MH) is battling a quite severe outburst of the COVID-19 epidemic, Raut is busy creating baseless allegations over the BJP, he claimed.

“In place of introspecting on why the farmers of our state haven’t being given enough loans for the next harvest season & why they were given bogus seeds in numerous dists, Shiv Sena is creating failed attempts to discredit the BJP & its command both within the Center & the state,” Patil added further.

He stated that the Shiv Sena controlled the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) for the past 3 decades, however just like each yr., the residents this yr. too suffered because of flooding & extensive water logging within the 1st spell of rains.

“However ‘Saamana’ is always silent on these real problems that plague the state today. It only passes comments over the Center & Prime Minster Narendra Modi,” he stated.

His own his own column, ‘Rokhthokh’, Raut hit out in the BJP over the problem of appointment of 12 Maharashtra(MH) Legislative Council members from that governor’squota, informing delay in their own nomination would money to violation of the Constitution & suppression of freedom.

The Rajya Sabha member stated there have been speculations that the appointment of 12 Legislative Council members from that governor’s quota may be put on hold & the “new govt” (after ousting the MVA) would make its own appointments after Oct.

The MVA govt is yet to recommend 12 names to the governor for nomination within the Legislative Council. The term of the 12 governor-nominated appointees stopped past month.
