Oppn to raise uncomfortable questions in next legislative session
Ratnagiri, Maharashtra, Feb 26 (UNI) Leader of Opposition in the Maharashtra Assembly Ramdas Kadam today said the opposition will raise the issues related to the failure of the Congress-NCP combine government in the state during the forthcoming legislative session.
Mr Kadam was speaking to newspersons after attending a religious function on the occasion of 'Mahashivratri' at the renovated Shiv temple at Pomendi of Guhagar taluka in this district.
He said among the government's failures included large scale malnutrition deaths, farmers' suicides and severe power problem faced by the people.
He said it was shameful that even after an assurance from Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh at the last Nagpur session, nearly 200 farmers had committed suicides in Vidarbha region.
Mr Kadam said that he would visit Melghat on March eight or nine to review the situation there.
To a query whether Revenue Minister Narayan Rane had hatched a conspiracy to unseat him as Leader of Oppoisiiton, he retorted, ''I am not bothered about this. Instead of being under pressure for 100 days, I will face boldly and hit back in 10 days.'' On the Shiv Sena's recent defeats in the three assembly constituencies of the Konkan region, Mr Kadam said that there was nothing to worry about the Sena and its future there. Sporadic incidents of betrayal by the BJP will not affect his party, he added.
Earlier, Thane Mayor Rajan Vichare, who hails from the village, welcomed Mr Kadam.
