The Opposition leaders, including Anil Deshmukh, have been questioning the Maharashtra government on withdrawing Government Resolutions, and have criticised it for lacking communication among all stakeholders

In last one hand half year, the Eknath Shinde-Devendra Fadnavis government in Maharashtra has withdrawn five Government Resolutions (GR). Despite claiming to be “better communicators”, the state government is now facing the ire of the Opposition over the reasons behind withdrawing the GRs.

Since Ajit Pawar joined hands with the Shinde-Fadnavis government, the ‘Mahayuti’ has always claimed to have very smooth communication among all three stakeholders. But, according to the reports, the government has withdrawn five GRs in different departments such as agriculture and education, in less than 1.5 years.

When the state agriculture department announced that Maharashtra has enough production of sugarcane, the revenue department later put restrictions on the inter-state sale of the crop. After the farmers protested government’s move, the order was withdrawn.

In the 2022-23 sugar season, which ended on September 30, Maharashtra has produced 105 lakh tonnes of sugar, down 23% from a year ago due to rainfall.

In another instance, while giving loan of Rs 539 crore to six sugar mills, the finance department had put a condition that the directors of the sugar mills will have to take personal responsibility of the loan.

Few BJP leaders, who were directly and indirectly associated with these sugar mills, approached Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra and compliant against the move by Ajit Pawar’s department. Later, the condition was withdrawn by the finance department.

Shiv Sena Shinde faction leader and education minister Deepak Kesarkar received flak from schools and parents when his department decided that all schools in the state will have one uniform. The order was also later revoked.

When the state government took the decision to make new changes in the State Service Commission exams, the aspirants protested. The government then decided to implement the new changes from 2025.

In another case, the government’s decision to distribute the land parcel of Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC), by which it would have supposedly earned around Rs 12,000 crore, was also withdrawn.

Maharashtra Congress chief spokesperson Atul Londhe has questioned the government over the withdrawal of GRs. “This government works under the pressure of 50 khokha (a term used to describe crore rupees) given to their MLAs. This example shows lack of consensus between all stakeholders of this government. It is very much clear that they come together just for ‘power’ nothing else.”

Meanwhile, Anil Deshmukh, NCP (Sharad Pawar faction)’s chief, said, “I was part of many governments, but to date, I have never seen anyone rolling back on its decisions. We never functioned like this. This is happening because there is ‘Triple Engine’ government in the state. This clearly shows that all three parties have very poor coordination while taking decisions.”

News18 tried to reach out to the spokesperson(s) from the state government, but the call went unanswered.

Taking note of the TMC’s poor performance in urban areas, Mamata Banerjee said, “This was the worst performance of municipalities…A gang is taking money and making outsiders settle here. They want to change the identity of Bengal, but I will not allow this…”

Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief and West Bengal Chief Minister (CM) Mamata Banerjee lashed out at municipality chiefs over their “poor performance and service” in the first review meeting on Monday.

Banerjee started the meeting stating that she will sound bitter because for her common people are important. She said, “This is the worst performance of municipalities, I don’t know why it happened. A gang has grouped and they are taking money and making outsiders settle here. They want to change the identity of Bengal, but I will not allow this…There are dirty roads and nobody looks into it. Should I sweep the roads now?”

Banerjee announced the formation of review committee constituting of CID officers, Vigilance officers and ADG law and order to monitor the performance of politicians and officers. Banerjee said, “Some people think that they will stay for two years and go, but now all their work will be reviewed and monitored by one committee of ADG LO, CID officers and Vigilance officers.”

Chairmen of all municipalities, mayors of corporation, district magistrates, police chiefs attended the meeting.

She also said that along with the review committee, there will be no local tender. For any local work, tenders will be centrally assigned. For this, too, she formed a committee with secretary of land department, irrigation department, DG, ADG LO.

Banerjee said that all these things will be sorted first, and only then will she think of the civic polls, due next year.

She has directed the Howrah police to enquire on Howrah land cases immediately. “My words may be bitter but remember municipalities give service to people,” she said.

WHY THE OUTBURST?

Sources told News18 that the review comes in the wake of the TMC’s poor performance in the urban areas in the polls. Of the 121 municipalities, the BJP has been ahead in 69, while in Kolkata, of the 144 wards, the BJP has been ahead in more than 40. The TMC scored more overall seats than the BJP in the Lok Sabha elections,

A review by Banerjee has revealed that government properties have been encroached upon with the help of one section public representatives and bureaucracy. These “outsiders”, according to sources, have not voted for the TMC.

The survey also pointed out that bad municipal management by councillors and chairman of municipalities, who are unpopular for their cut money, made people turn away from the TMC.

Consequently, Banerjee made it clear that she will not tolerate these practices.

The BJP though has stated that Banerjee has said this because she knows her end is nearing. Samik Bhattacharya, BJP MP, said, “They have done badly, that is why she is scolding her people, but urban people have understood the TMC.”
