Raut told TOI, “The government has yet to form a cabinet after two weeks. Cases against 16 rebel MLAs, including Shinde, are still pending in the Supreme Court and the sword of disqualification hangs over their heads. I don’t think they will finish their term.”
Speaking upon arrival in the city, the party’s main spokesman said even the proposed expansion of the cabinet after July 19 would be illegal until the high court declares its ruling and if unanimous. Director Dr. Koshyari swore to them, it would be completely unconstitutional.
“No government has existed in Maharashtra until now. I see a two-man cabinet (CM Shinde and deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis) hold a meeting and make decisions. Why is the cabinet expansion not taking place? The media must search for an answer to this question,” added Raut.
During his two-day visit to the city, Raut was warmly greeted at the airport by a large number of supporters, led by Pramod Manmode in charge of the city. He then met the public head of the Dushyant Chaturvedi party and others.
Reacting to the government’s decision to grant all permits for the Mumbai-Ahmedabad high speed train project of 1.1 lakh crore, MP Rajya Sabha blamed it on acting with “guaranteed interests”. The three-party government led by Uddhav Thackeray has refused to allocate 4.2 hectares of land at the Bandra Kurla Complex for the construction of the station for the National High Speed Railway Company Limited (NHSRCL).
“Our Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government also holds a majority and all decisions are made after consultations more widely, and in the interest of the general public. The Fadnavis-Shinde duo should not make decisions that are detrimental to the public in the future, just for the sake of protesting against projects that were stopped by the previous government,” he said, calling for the move. government’s attempt to overturn every decision of MVA as Aarey Colony metro station is “unfortunate”.
Given that the flood crisis in Vidarbha is serious, he questions the survival of the Shinde-Fadnavis government when more than 80 people have died from the relentless rain, even as diseases such as cholera are spreading rapidly.
Clarifying that support for NDA presidential candidate Draupadi Murmu is apolitical, Thackeray loyalist said his party has extended support for Murmu as she will be the first tribe to occupy highest position in the country.
“We have a large tribal population in Maharashtra. Many of our MLAs, congressmen, and other public representatives come from the same community. In the past, we have also supported candidates like Pratibha Patil, Pranab Mukherjee and former chief election commissioner TN Seshan,” Raut said.
Training his gun for the governor, the congressman blamed him for “deliberately delaying” filling in the MLC’s 12 positions on the council and opposing MVA policies. However, he praised the government’s decision to cut fuel prices.
Saying he was sent by chairman Shiv Sena to meet with workers and office workers in the district, Raut said the party is working hard to strengthen its base in Vidarbha and the results will be seen soon. . He added, “I went to Vice CM’s city to interact with workers and leaders for two days, and absorb their suggestions. I’m glad the party is still intact in this part of the state. Sena has been in a similar situation many times in the past. Over the past 56 years, it has weathered many such storms and emerged stronger each time.”
