Mumbai, Aug 14: Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Friday lambasted the NCP for shedding "crocodile tears" over the plight of farmers in the state.

"I want to ask the NCP...who is responsible for the agrarian mess?...Who destroyed the Osmanabad district co-operative bank, milk federation, sugar co-operative and spinning mill in the district?," Fadnavis asked.

He also demanded that NCP should tell people who diverted Marathwada's share in the Krishna valley.

"The agitation launched by Pawar is nothing but shedding crocodile tears. My government is doing everything for the betterment of farmers," he said.
