Mahavikas Aghadi today called off Maharashtra in protest against Lakhimpur Khiri Violence, UP. (Maharashtra Bandh) is invoked. Leader of Opposition and former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has called this Maharashtra bandh called by Congress, NCP and Shiv Sena as a hoax.
Addressing the journalists today, Devendra Fadnavis said, “After the Maha Vikas Aghadi government came to power, till now 2 thousand farmers have committed suicide in Maharashtra. The farmers have suffered tremendous losses due to the recent rains and floods. No help was provided for them. They do not have time to wipe the tears of the farmers of Marathwada. The guardian minister has not even gone there till now. If there is sympathy from the farmers then why doesn’t Mahavikas Aghadi announce package for the farmers of Marathwada?”
‘I didn’t remember Jallianwala Bagh when farmers were gunned down in Maval?’
NCP chief Sharad Pawar compared Lakhimpur Kheri violence to Jallianwala Bagh. Responding to this, Devendra Fadnavis said, “The farmers who asked for Maval water were fired with bullets. Then they do not see Jallianwala Bagh. Four days ago, when farmers protest in Rajasthan and that movement is crushed with sticks, then the people of this Mahavikas Aghadi government do not say anything. We believe that the Lakhimpur incident is tragic. The government there is taking action for this. But Mahavikas Aghadi is pretending to shed tears for them. If they really cared about the farmers, they would have brought relief to the farmers of Maharashtra.
‘Saiyan Bhaye Kotwal to fear why, with the help of the police, he is being shut down’
Devendra Fadnavis alleged that the government machinery is being misused to make the Maharashtra bandh a success. He said, “The leaders of Mahavikas Aghadi are forcibly pressing for the closure. This is state terrorism. The bandh does not have the support of the general public. The High Court has ordered a ban on such bandhs. This is contempt of High Court. We appeal to the High Court to take cognizance of this matter. For the first time in the history of independent India, it has happened that the government which is responsible for running the law and order, the people belonging to the same government meet, decide on the bandh in the cabinet meeting. Constitution is being blown up in Maharashtra.
‘With the help of police, sabotage was carried out, the pretense of Mahavikas Aghadi came to the fore’
Yuva Sena workers burnt tires in Solapur. Standing on the highway in Kolhapur too, the Shiv Senaks blocked the way by force. Eight BEST buses were vandalized in Mumbai. Shiv Sainiks burnt tires on the Eastern Expressway. Reacting to all these violent incidents, Devendra Fadnavisan said, “When BJP conducts peaceful agitation, there is lathi-charge. Only the police is helping to get it closed here. It is being closed by threatening, pressurizing. BEST buses are vandalized in Mumbai, the police cannot do anything. All this game is pre-planned. It is visible how peaceful this movement is becoming. The pretense of the Maviya government has now come to the fore.”
The hypocrisy of the Mahavikas Aghadi government, not the hypocrisy of Fadnavis, came to the fore – Nana Patole
In response, Congress state president Nana Patole said, “Devendra Fadnavis is feeling so much pain for Marathwada, so we have sought help from the Center. They should get it to us from the Modi government at the Center. Congress does not talk like ‘something on the lips, something in the stomach’. Fadnavis’s pretense has come to the fore, not of the Mavia government.” Congress leaders like Nana Patole, Ashok Chavan, Bhai Jagtap, Yashomati Thakur are doing silent agitation outside Raj Bhavan. By observing a fast of silence, Maharashtra is calling for a bandh.
