Taking a dig at NCP chief Sharad Pawar on his recent letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the economic stimulus package, senior BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday demanded a similar measure from the Shiv Sena-led Maharashtra government.
Congress hit back asking why did MLAs of the Opposition party donated their local area development fund to the PM Cares Fund instead of to the CM Relief Fund if they are so concerned about Maharashtra. The NCP and the Congress are the constituents in the Sena-led Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government.
Fadnavis said, after meeting state Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari along with other BJP leaders, “Uddhav Thackeray-led MVA government should announce a package on the lines of the Centre. NCP chief Sharad Pawar has written several letters to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He should write one such letter to CM Uddhav Thackeray as well.”
