Gondia: Slamming the ruling combine of Congress-NCP over farmers` suicide in Vidarbha region, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray today said he would take up their issues with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"The Congress-NCP government in Maharashtra failed to take decisions in favour of farmers, which is why so many farmers committed suicide in Vidarbha region," Thackeray said during a public meeting here.
"I am aware of the problems that the Vidarbha farmers are facing. The lack of rains is only adding to their woes. I will personally take up their issues with Prime Minister to bring about a positive change in their condition," he added.
Stating that the Congress-NCP combine was decimated in Vidarbha in the recent Lok Sabha polls, the Sena chief said, "People have power to bring change. They gave a thumping mandate in favour of the safforn alliance of Shiv Sena BJP in the parliamentary polls and they need to keep up this trend in the upcoming assembly polls as well."
