A day after expressing his angst at the slow pace of decision-making in the state government regarding key infrastructure projects,South Mumbai MP Milind Deora on Thursday rubbished suggestions that his apparent chiding of the Prithviraj Chavan-led government was part of a political wrangling underway in the party.
I speak as a Mumbaikar,not a minister, he said. I am not one to use Twitter for political posturing. I am not a guy who plays pressure politics. And I am not in the fray for any party posts. I just tweeted about four projects that are delayed… It was not a personal thing against any leader. I think the chief minister will understand that too.
While Chavan chose not to respond to Deoras tweets,Maharashtra Congress chief Manikrao Thakre said: I am sure he has the best interests of the city in mind. I will speak to him to understand his anger or frustration.
Thakre denied suggestions that Deoras comments were a result of party politics.
