Thane: BJP spokesman for Maharashtra, Madhav Bhandari said here on Sunday that the NCP's agitation seeks to divert attention of citizens from the irrigation scam probe which involves its senior leaders he said.
Addressing a press conference here he said that NCP Chief Sharad Pawar was not serious about the present drought situation faced by the state.
