Thane: Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said here on Monday that he did not become a chief minister to "sit" on files.
"I have not become a Chief Minister to sit on files, like the previous ones, but to clear genuine files quickly," Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said at a function here tonight, inaugurating the 'Agri Mahotsav' at Dombivili.
"The previous government has left a lot of work for me which I am expected to clear," Fadnavis said.
He said that on a day he gets 300 files on an average and 2,000 memoranda from citizens.
Files which reach him everyday are usually cleared the same day, while some files are sent to the Law and Judiciary Department for its opinion, he said.
He paid rich tributes to Koli and Agri communities, adding that their contribution to the development of the state is noteworthy.
The Agri community's ancient culture should be preserved and not allowed to fade away, he said.
He said that he would surely resolve long pending issues of urban citizens in Kalyan and other regions.
The issue of plots of land for the Agri community, as well as college and waste disposal facilities would be resolved in a month, he said.
He said that he is unhappy with the speed of work of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) and said that it needs to speed up its work.
Talking to reporters later, he said that talks between the BJP and the Shiv Sena are on, from which he expected a positive outcome soon.
