Despite sharing power with the incumbent Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Shiv Sena on Wednesday took out morcha at the office of Bharti Axa General Insurance Company to protest against delays in clearing of the premium claims of farmers under the initiatives like crop insurance and loan waiver to state farmers.
Farmers, especially from the drought-hit 151 tehsils, have complained about the lack of early clearance of premiums under the crop insurance and crop waiver schemes.
In case of crop loan waiver schemes, the farmers, whose crop loans were waived, their names should be enrolled back by the banks to provide them with fresh loans.
Sena's move aims to reach out to farmers and lure them in the run-up to the state Assembly election slated for October.
It is also Thackeray's attempt to project that Shiv Sena is not power hungry and despite being in power, it will continue to raise problems faced by various sections.
