In an attack on the state government of Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) led by Uddhav Thackeray, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Sunday that it was a “unnecessary government”, which ruled the state on the “principles” of concessionaire, broker and Money Transfer System (DBT).
“In the past, I had referred to the MVA government as a three-wheeled automatic rickshaw, with each wheel moving in a different direction. Now I want to make an improvement on the statement… it’s a three-wheel rickshaw with each wheel going in a different direction, and all the tires are flat. This rickshaw cannot move but only emits smoke and create pollution, ”said the senior BJP official.
The Home Secretary said Maharashtra has been at the forefront in many areas for years in the country. “Can they bring back the lost glory of the state? We have to tell the voters. It is a useless government (nikammi). The exit of this government should begin as soon as the elections of the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) ”, said Shah while addressing the workers of the party at the launch of the“ sampark abhiyan ”in the city.
He said the Central Modi government had proposed the Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) scheme to transfer financial assistance to the eligible needy in the country, while the state MVA government redefined DBT. “Congress views D as a concessionaire, Shiv Sena views B as a broker, and NCP views T as a reduction of money for transfers of officials. They see DBT as a system of broker, broker and money transfer, ”said Shah, while facing off against the three constituents of the ruling state government.
He said many top MVA leaders are in jail for asking for money to be transferred.
Shah said that Lokmanya Tilak gave the slogan “Freedom is my birthright and I will have it”, but the Shiv Sena believes “Power is my birthright and I will have it”. “They got the post of chief minister. Thus, they should show courage in resigning and organizing new elections. The BJP is ready to confront the ruling tripartite alliance in the state, ”Shah said.
Recalling the discussion between the BJP and Shiv Sena in the 2019 parliamentary elections, the top BJP leader said that it had been jointly decided that the elections would be conducted under the leadership of Devendra Fadanavis and that he would be the chief minister. after winning the election. “The Shiv Sena has turned its back on the promise. He compromised with Hindutva to gain power in the state, ”he said. “They asked for votes on behalf of Modiji. They betrayed us after the legislative elections, ”he added.
Criticizing MVA’s partners for their protest against inflation, the Union Minister said the Union government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has reduced the prices of gasoline and diesel while calling for the state governments to continue their efforts to reduce fuel prices. “The MVA took it another way and instead of cutting fuel prices, they cut alcohol prices… They are vindictive by bringing criminal charges against BJP leaders and workers. We will not be afraid, ”he added.
Shah said the BJP was betrayed in the 2019 parliamentary elections and it was time for the party to fight back. “The situation in Maharashtra has to change and it should start from the city of Pune. Normally there is one result for an election. However, the PMC elections will yield two results with one from civic body and the second from upcoming assembly elections. BJP workers should lay the groundwork for exiting the MVA through the PMC elections, ”Shah added.
