Social activist Anna Hazare today alleged a nexus among some Maharashtra politicians in selling sugar factories to private players by deliberately declaring them "sick".
NCP controls a sizable number of sugar factories in the party stronghold of western Maharashtra.
Maharashtra CM Prithviraj Chavan told the powerful cooperative sugar industry to
refrain from demanding "crutches" in form of the govt support and asked the sector to adopt "professional and
transparent management" practises.
The High Court, on July 12, 2006, had asked government
not to allow new factories to come up, or existing ones to
expand the capacity.
