Mumbai, Apr 14: The BJP-led Government in Maharashtra was a “management disaster”, Congress leader Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil today said, addressing the media after the Budget session. Stating that the Government was a complete failure on all counts during the session, the Leader of Opposition stated that the Finance Minister couldn’t specify exact monetary allocations for most of the announcements made in the Budget.
“There have been incidents where sitting as well as former MLAs were assaulted. There were several other incidents where BJP workers are involved which creates the impression that the Government is backing the goons,” he said. “Chief Minister appears to have opened a ‘single-window’ to give clean chits to his ministers,” Vikhe-Patil said, commenting on the way the corruption charges against several ministers were brushed aside.

“Inquiry needs to be done, this is our contention,” said the former Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan, mentioning the pulses scam issue raised in the House and alleging that Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis gave misleading information over the issue in the House. Vikhe-Patil also criticised the state Government for not allocating funds for the proposed Shivaji memorial and said the BJP used King Shivaji’s name only for political gains.
