Congress, NCP slam Maharashtra govt over drought, recruitment issues

Mumbai | Senior Congress leader Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil on Thursday alleged that the Maharashtra government has failed to implement drought relief measures and carry out recruitment drive.

Addressing a press conference at the end of the budget session, Vikhe Patil said the opposition had planned that it would highlight the failures of the government during a debate on the vote-on-account presented in the legislature on Wednesday.

“However, due to tension between India and Pakistan, the session had to be curtailed. So, we tabled what we had to say on the floor of the House. Finance Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar has assured to respond to our views in writing within a week’s time,” the Leader of Opposition in the Legislative Assembly said.

Vikhe Patil added that despite announcing a mega recruitment drive last year, the government was yet to initiate the process.

The BJP-led dispensation has also failed to implement drought relief measures, he said.

Leader of Opposition in the Council Dhananjay Munde accused the BJP of politicising the issue of national security.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi is addressing BJP booth workers campaigning for elections despite tension at the border,” he alleged.
