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In last one hand half year, the Eknath Shinde-Devendra Fadnavis government in Maharashtra has withdrawn five Government Resolutions (GR).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 But, according to the reports, the government has withdrawn five GRs in different departments such as agriculture and education, in less than 1.5 years.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 After the farmers protested government’s move, the order was withdrawn.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 Later, the condition was withdrawn by the finance department.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Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC), by which it would have supposedly earned around Rs 12,000 crore, was also withdrawn.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.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president JP Nadda has said the upcoming Lok Sabha elections will be a battle between dynastic politics and corruption on one side and development on the other.

Addressing party workers from Mumbai’s western suburbs during his visit to the metropolis on Wednesday, Nadda said under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership, India is well on its way to become the third largest economy in the world from fifth now.

Attacking anti-BJP opposition parties, he alleged that they were either dynastic or steeped in corruption.

“You have to reach out to voters and seek their support for a fresh mandate (for BJP at the Centre). First-time voters in the last ten years have seen only development and not corruption like previous governments,” Nadda asserted, referring to the decade-long rule of the Modi administration that started in 2014.

He said the Lok Sabha elections, likely to be held in April-May, will be a fight between dynastic politics and corruption on one side and development on the other.

Dynastic politics and corruption will lead to destruction, Nadda said and highlighted the BJP’s development agenda.

Earlier in the day, Nadda met BJP office-bearers from all the 36 assembly constituencies in Mumbai besides party MPs and MLAs from the metropolis.

In his address, Nadda asked BJP leaders from Mumbai to ensure the party ideology reaches the last person in society and urged them to give a befitting reply to opposition attacks on the saffron outfit and its government.

He advised BJP leaders to extensively use social media and seek support of prominent personalities on issues of public interest.

Nadda also chaired the Election Management Committee’s meetings for all the six Lok Sabha constituencies in Mumbai as part of preparations for the national polls.

In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the BJP and its then-ally, the undivided Shiv Sena, won three seats each in Mumbai. In the Maharashtra assembly polls held in October that year, the BJP won 16 of the 36 seats in the city, while 14 were bagged by the Sena.

The state, where the BJP is in power in alliance with the Shiv Sena led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and the Ajit Pawar-headed NCP, has a 288-member legislative assembly.

This comes amid a raging war of words between the BJP and the TMC over alleged incidents of rape and harassment of women in Sandeshkhali in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas district ahead of the Lok Sabha elections

The BJP is set to release a documentary on Sandeshkhali on Thursday with the party intensifying its attack on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee-led TMC government over the alleged incidents of atrocities and sexual assault on women there.

The “exclusive” documentary titled ‘The Sandeshkhali Socker – The Big Reveal’ will be released Thursday morning at 9 am, the BJP said in post on X, asking Banerjee in Bangla, “Didi ke bolo aaro koto ‘Sandeshkhali’ (Tell didi how many more Sandeshkhali like incidents)”.

This comes amid a raging war of words between the BJP and the TMC over alleged incidents of rape and harassment of women in Sandeshkhali in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas district ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.

The riverine Sandeshkhali area — situated on the borders of the Sunderbans, about 100 kilometres from Kolkata — has been witnessing protests after the local women accused absconding Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Sheikh Shahjahan and his supporters of land grab and sexual assault under coercion.

Interestingly, ‘Didi Ke Bolo’ is a campaign launched by the TMC after the 2019 Lok Sabha polls to provide a platform for the people of West Bengal to directly raise their concerns or lodge complaints with Chief Minister Banerjee.

The TMC’s move was reportedly aimed at countering the BJP in the state.
