“What They…”: Devendra Fadnavis Attacks Opposition Over Maratha Quota Row

No Tobacco Day

Devendra Fadnavis, the deputy chief minister of Maharashtra, attacked the opposition parties on Saturday, questioning what they accomplished for the state’s Marathwada region during their two-and-a-half years in power.
After landing at this airport to attend a meeting of the state cabinet, the senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) politician spoke to reporters.

The Eknath Shinde administration is accused by the opposition parties of failing to carry out the decisions made for the development of Marathwada, which includes the districts of Osmanabad, Jalna, Beed, Latur, Nanded, Hingoli, and Parbhani.

Ambadas Danve, a leader of the Shiv Sena (UBT), questioned earlier this week why the state administration had not put the choices made at a cabinet meeting in 2016 when Devendra Fadnavis was the chief minister.

Imtiaz Jaleel, a member of the All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), questioned the Eknath Shinde administration on the unfinished projects and decisions that have not yet been carried out in the area.

“Those who claim that decisions made at a cabinet meeting held here in 2016 have not been carried out should explain what they did while in power for two and a half years. It was the previous administration’s responsibility to carry out the decisions if they were not carried out. What did they accomplish when they were in charge? inquired Mr. Fadnavis.

“The previous (Maha Vikas Aghadi) administration terminated the Marathwada water grid project. They are making these accusations merely to try to stop the cabinet meeting for the Marathwada region’s development, the speaker continued.

After an uprising by Eknath Shinde that caused a rift in the Shiv Sena, the MVA administration, which was led by Uddhav Thackeray, was overthrown in June 2022.

The state cabinet meeting is being held in this location in honour of Marathwada Liberation Day, also known as Marathwada Mukti Sangram Din, which is observed yearly on September 17th.

Marathwada Following the security forces’ invasion of Hyderabad and their subsequent defeat of the Nizam and his Razakar units on September 17, 1948, Mukti Sangram Din signifies the incorporation of Marathwada into India.
