Former deputy chief minister of Maharashtra and senior leader of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), Ajit Pawar,on Monday accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led state government of being corrupt and claimed that it has caused disillusionment among the people of the state with its falseassurances in last three and half years.
Addressing a rally organised by NCP this evening as part of its state-wide "Hallabol" agitation against the state government for itsalleged failure on all fronts, Mr Pawar severely criticised the BJP government and said that it has only given false assurances since itcame to power in the state.
As a result, resentment against this government was rising among thepeople, he said.
Mr Pawar alleged that the state government was working in an irresponsible manner and in the wrong direction, and hence people inthe state were speaking out openly against it and its wrong policies, he said. The NCP leader further said that the state government was giving too much attention to trivial things like cow protection rather than resolving the issues that are plaguing the state.
He also alleged that there was not any restraint of the Home Ministry on the state police department and added that if the government had acted in time then the lives of police officials like Ms Ashwini Binder and Anil Kothale could have been saved.
Leader of Opposition in state Legislative Council Dhananjay Mundeand NCP state president Sunil Tatkare also lashed out at the government on corruption. UNI SSS SS JW2332
