Thackeray ridicules CM for comparing Maha with US

Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan`s statement that the state was competing "not against any other state but with the US and China on the development front" has not gone down well with Shiv Sena.



Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok
Chavan`s statement that the state was competing "not against
any other state but with the US and China on the development
front" has not gone down well with Shiv Sena.

"Does Chavan mean that farmers committed suicide in the
US or China as 14,000 of them did in Vidarbha in last five
years," Sena chief Bal Thackeray said in an editorial in party
mouthpiece `Saamana` here today.

Chavan should tell in which spheres has Maharashtra
equalled US or China, Thackeray said.

"We are not aware of any load shedding in either US or
China as a result of acute power shortage," the Sena chief
said.

"There are around 55-60 lakh illegal Bangladeshis in
Mumbai and Navi Mumbai. Chavan should tell us the number of
such migrants in US and China," he said.

Industries in Maharashtra have been turned into
graveyard, while China is leaving the US behind as industrial
superpower, Thackeray said.

Comparing Maharashtra with the two countries is humbug,
he added.

Chavan had recently in an interview said Maharashtra`s
competition is not with any other state but with the Unites
States and China on the development front.
