Gadkari urges President, PM to dissolve Cong-NCP run govt in Mah

Written by: Staff

Mumbai, Mar 26 (UNI) BJP leader Nitin Gadkari today urged President A P J Abdul Kalam and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to dissolve the Congress-NCP run Democratic Front government in Maharashtra.

He alleged that the Congress-NCP government had been violating Section 371 (2) of the Constitution as well as the directives of the Governor for three years continuously, which was a very serious matter. For the first time in the history of Maharashtra, the Governor did not give permission for the Appropriation Bill and hence the same could not be tabled, he said in a release.

Mr Gadkari alleged that an amount of Rs 1,041 crores, allotted to other regions of Maharashtra was diverted for the Krishna Valley Development Project. He described this as violation of the Governors as well as the Constitution and urged the President and Prime Minister to dissolve the Congress-NCP run state government.

He said a delegation of Shiv Sena-BJP legislators met the Governor and pointed out to him that Congress-NCP was violating his directions since the last three years.

When this issue was raised in the Legislative Assembly, both the Houses were adjourned over the same. Then Mr Gadkari persisted on his demand to check whether the funds were diverted or not despite the positive remarks of the Chief Minister.
