Mumbai, Aug 14 (UNI) Maharashtra BJP president Nitin Gadkari today demanded that no government land at prime locations should be allotted to any private company.

His statement assumes significance in the backdrop of the government's decision to allot land at Navi Mumbai, near the proposed international airport, to Videocon which sparked off sharp reaction from Revenue Minister Narayan Rane.

Mr Gadkari told reporters that the government can give land for the project in the backward regions of the state, but not at the prime locations like Navi Mumbai.

He said the two-day BJP conclave of the state executive committee, held on August 12 and 13, had passed five resolutions on political education and other issues.

The BJP leader said his party would organise a statewide 'Parivartan Abhiyan' in the state from September 25 to October 5.

A massive rally would also be organised on the first day of the winter session of state assembly at Nagpur, he informed.

He said the state is reeling under the debt of Rs 1.51 lakh crore and 15,000 farmers had committed suicide so far in the state during the Congress-NCP rule.

Mr Gadkari also demanded that there should a ban on the export of meat, as demanded by the Jain community, so that the killing of animals would stop in various abattoirs.
