The Shiv Sena has switched sides and is supporting the opposition parties Congerss-NCP in their demand of Rs 12,000 cr package to meet out the irrigation backlog in Marathwada region in the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly.

Jalna MLA Arjun Khotkar has raised the issue of the Marathwada drought and complained Water Resources Minister Girish Mahajan had not mentioned anything in his reply on Marathwada’s irrigation and development that would give relief to people of the region.

Leader of Opposition Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil said the government has made provision of only Rs 900 crores and it is like rubbing salt on the wounds of people of Marathwada as it is extremely less and demanded that a package of 12,000 cr be provided to overcome the issue.

Chief Minister Devendra said Farmer suicide is the highest in the Marathwada and Vidarbha region, with over 1000 suicides last year, but surprisingly the loan wavier offered by the previous congress government was least in this area. The CM assured that the government will come up with a 25,000 crore plan for sustainable agriculture over the next five years and not just offer short-term relief to farmers as it will not improve their condition in the long run. Former Deputy

CM Ajit Pawar admitted the previous Congress-NCP government’s failures saying;

“the previous government (Congress-NCP) had done all it could. Some mistakes happened and that is why people voted you to power.”
