An assessment of Maharashtra’s Jalyukt Shivar Yojana that claims to have “drought-proofed” half of the state’s 25,000 most vulnerable villages in two-and-a-half years
Ajit Pawar demanded that the Shiv Sena-controlled Mumbai municipality must loan Rs 60,000 crore to the government to meet the farm loan waiver bill. The municipality, which is the country’s richest civic body, has Rs 61,500 crore in fixed deposits. Taking a veiled dig at Uddhav Thackeray, Pawar said that this single move would propel Shiv Sena to popularity in the rural heartlands.
Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, in his written reply, confirmed that of the buildings tagged unfit to live in, 112 had been vacated, while 42 others had been referred to a technical advisory committee.
The Congress back-tracked, paving the way for the NCP to have its way to adopt and debate the work of Sharad Pawar, followed by Indira Gandhi.
“Unfortunately, Maharashtra is no more the number one state in the country. Other chief ministers are wooing industry to their states. Maharashtra CM should be on his toes,” Sena MP Sanjay Raut said

During 2008 and 2009, Congress-NCP govt waived Rs 290-crore loan availed by farmers in Mumbai city and suburbs, as per statistics furnished by banks
Amid all the questions being raised, Fadnavis himself claimed that the figure showing the presence of farmers in Mumbai had stumped him too. “Even I was left wondering if Mumbai has farmers. But, this is a proposed beneficiaries’ list. The list will be finalised after proper scrutiny,” he said.
MPCC spokesperson Sachin Sawant said that according to figures provided by the State Level Banking Committee, the number of farmers who will be eligible for a loan waiver in Buldhana is 2,35,839, and similar is the case in Yavatmal.
Devendra Fadnavis noted that prohibition of cow slaughter was part of the Constitution under Article 48, adding that looking after cows’ welfare was important for a better future.
The farmers expressed their gratitude to the chief minister for the decision which is likely to impact 89 lakh farmers in the state.
The Chief Minister was speaking at a program organised by Marathi Patrakar Parishad where senior RSS leader M G Vaidya and several journalists were felicitated. He added that since the decision has been taken in farmers’ interest, there is no harm in government bearing the financial stress.
