What’s Necessary For Maharashtra Govt? Fight With Corona Or Kangana?
Former Mumbai Congress President brought to light that Maharashtra is India’s ground zero for COVID-19 and the government is digressing.
On Thursday (September 10), late in the evening, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, Congress leader Sharad Pawar and Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut had a meeting. Sources said that they discussed the government’s strategy on the Maratha reservation issue after the apex court stayed its implementation but, clearly, Pawar’s disquiet found an echo in a section of the Congress, too. Former Mumbai Congress President Sanjay Nirupam did not mince his words. “Sitting in the government you cannot do such things. It is sending a very wrong message. I cannot remain silent.”
Nirupam further said, “She (Kangana Ranaut) may be in contact with the BJP, she may be doing all this at the instance of the BJP, but why are you, a political party and that, too, a ruling party falling into such a trap? It looks cheap.” “Appalled as a Mumbaikar with the state of affairs in the economic capital of India. Maharashtra is COVID-19’s ground zero. Instead of focusing on governance, we’re busy settling political scores. Time for all parties to come together and set our priorities right,” tweeted Milind Deora, another former Mumbai Congress President.
