BJP to spread message of Maharashtra government's work in villages: Raosaheb ​Danve

The meeting of the Maharashtra BJP unit started here wherein host of issues like the drought situation in the state will be discussed.

Nashik: BJP workers will spread the message about the work done by the Maharashtra government so far at the village-level, party's state unit chief Raosaheb Danve said on Saturday.

"The Centre has so far provided aid for drought (affected areas) and the Maharashtra government has also undertaken various solutions to tackle the situation," he told reporters.

The meeting of the Maharashtra BJP unit started here wherein host of issues like the drought situation in the state will be discussed.

The former Union Minister said the party has also given the responsibility of drought-affected tehsils to its 122 MLAs and 23 MPs from the state and all of them are monitoring the situation.

According to Danve, BJP workers will spread the message about the works done by the government so far in villages across the state.

BJP entered into an alliance with Shiv Sena in Maharashtra from October 2014.

On farmer's suicides, Danve said during the UPA regime, then Union agriculture minister Sharad Pawar had waived loans of farmers but (the number of) their suicides could not be reduced.

"Our government has offered farmers wheat at Rs 2 per kg, rice at Rs one per kg, electricity connections and agriculture ponds to the needy but it was very shameful that farmers are still committing suicide," Danve said.

The state BJP chief also claimed the present government has provided more financial aid to farmers than the earlier (Congress-NCP) government in the state.

Meanwhile, when asked about Shiv Sena's opposition to BJP in Nashik, he said both BJP and Shiv Sena are different political parties.

"Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) polls are much ahead, our workers have already started its work," he quipped.

Presently, MCGM is controlled by Shiv Sena with BJP's help.

Meanwhile, on BJP-Sena alliance in forthcoming MCGM polls, Danve said there was much time left for the Mumbai civic elections.

"We will discuss the issue for alliance and if not possible, we will contest those polls independently like the Assembly polls (in Maharashtra)," he added.
