  • | Sunday | 17th September, 2023

CHHATRAPATI SAMBHAJINAGAR: Deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, who was the chief minster during the last special cabinet meet in Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar on October 4, 2016, on Saturday hit out at the opposition leaders questioning the output of the previous meet. Speaking to the media, Fadnavis said they had taken 31 decisions in the last meeting and 23 of those had either been fulfilled or were nearing completion. At the same time, implementation of seven decisions was in progress.He added that one decision related to the construction of the main administrative building in Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar clubbing 25 government offices could not materialise as the MVA government failed to provide the required land. In fact, 10 decisions were implemented within one year itself, in 2017, while the work was in progress for the implementation of other 15 decisions, he said.Earlier, legislative councils leader of the opposition and Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Ambadas Danve said the promises and announcements from the cabinet meeting on Saturday were a repeat of those taken during the meeting seven years ago. The announcement of projects and funds are nothing but a mockery of Marathwada region that is reeling under serious water crisis, said Danve. Blaming the MVA government for the sluggish implementation of some decisions, Fadnavis indirectly attacked Shiv Sena chief and the then CM, Uddhav Thackeray. Those who were passive and inactive and chose not to step out of their homes despite being in power, are questioning the outcome of the cabinet meet, he said. Fadnavis cited the decision to include Aurangabad in the Heritage City Development and Augmentation Yojana (HRIDAY) and also in Unescos World Heritage City Programme. He said the local civic body had passed the necessary proposal in 2017 and later, instructions were issued to the Directorate of Archaeology and Museums. We had also invited tenders for the appointment of architectures for charting out the proposal that needs to be sent to Unesco. Things were stuck later during the MVA rule, he said. He also blamed the previous government for the delay in setting up the seed park at Jalna, textile park each at Parbhani, Beed and Nanded districts and the raising of the transport hub at Karodi. The official communique issued by Fadnavis on the outcome of the last cabinet meet, claimed the success of the effective implementation of the ongoing Krishna - Bhima Marathwada irrigation project among other irrigation projects. Danve said the government has allocated Rs 50 crore for the survey of the river connectivity project. However, even before this survey is done, the government has unilaterally announced a budget of Rs 14,000 crores for related works. Danve said the hopes of the people of Marathwada were shattered as the government failed to take concrete pro-people and pro-farmer decisions, except for the decision to provide crop insurance for Rs one to the farmers.
