Mumbai, Mar 16 (UNI) Opposition leader Ramdas Kadam today asked the government to take measures to rehabilitate mill workers in Mumbai and overcome acute power shortage in the state.

Initiating a debate on motion thanking Governor S M Krishna for his address to the joint sitting of the State Legislature, Mr Kadam wanted the government to provide figure of employment generated in the last two years in Maharashtra.

Speaking in the Assembly, he said sale of mill land to real estate developers has caused uncertainty to the livelihood and shelter of poor mill workers.

He criticised the government for failing to add even one mega watt of electricity to the generation capacity but at the same time admitted that the previous Sena-BJP government will also have to accept the blame.

The Shiv Sena leader lashed out at the government for allowing a massive assembly of Muslims in the city recently to protest the visit of US president George W Bush, accusing it of being soft on Muslims and of not realising the real motive behind such a show of strength.
