‘Fadnavis should share details of projects going to Gujarat’ | Pune News


PUNE: The state unit chief of Congress, Nana Patole, on Saturday said deputy chief minister Devendra Fandnavis should give details of projects, investments, companies and financial institutions going to Gujarat instead of Maharashtra during his tenure as the chief minister from 2014 to 2019.
He said it was unfortunate that the Vedanta-Foxconn project went to Gujarat from Maharashtra. “Fadnavis is now claiming that he would take the state ahead of Gujarat in the next two years. He should also provide details of projects that went to Gujarat from Maharashtra during the five-year BJP rule,” Patole told reporters here.
He said that he did not want to comment on chief minister Eknath Shinde as he was busy with cultural programmes.
He said BJP was indulging in politics of corruption and spreading fear by misusing CBI and ED. He said the non-BJP ruled states were being targeted. On other hand, he said, the Congress was fighting for the rights of the poor and maintaining harmony in society.
“We are constantly talking about issues like unemployment, curb on inflation, farmers’ suicides and right to education as all these issues are related to common people,” he said.
He said Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo campaign was highlighting the plights of common people. “It is not a political yatra. It is a campaign to connect people,” he said.
Patole, in the city to address the convention organized by his party’s OBC wing, said Congress wanted the Centre to conduct a caste-based Census. He said the BJP government declared in Parliament that 98% of the data pertaining to OBC was correct. “If so, why were the details not being announced by the government?”
He also claimed that the OBC data collected based on surnames was incorrect and so a proper Census was necessary.
Earlier, on Saturday, during his address to NCP workers at Majalgaon in Beed, former minister Dhananjay Munde stated that despite getting 120 MLAs, all BJP could achieve is the post of deputy chief minister.
“People should know that even the leader of opposition’s post is a constitutional post but deputy CM’s post is not even constitutional,” said Munde.
He questioned all the delays this government is causing in every work and said that Shinde-Fadnavis took 27 days to take oath as CM and deputy CM, “They took 42 days for cabinet expansion and now there are reports that ministers are upset over distribution of the portfolios to the ministers,” said Munde, while alleging that some of the ministers are yet to take charge of their respective portfolios.
