Uddhav Thackeray Slams BJP and Chief Minister Eknath Shinde in Press Conference Over Unseasonal Rain Crisis

Maharashtra Faces Agricultural Crisis as Uddhav Thackeray Criticizes Government's Response

November 28, 2023: In a recent press conference, Uddhav Thackeray, the chief of Shiv Sena, launched a scathing attack on Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for their alleged lack of planning and response to the unseasonal rain crisis in Maharashtra. Thackeray accused the government of insufficient development works in the state, emphasizing that zero planning was evident in the face of the agricultural challenges.

Thackeray criticized the Chief Minister’s proposed artificial rain initiative, describing it as unconstitutional and ineffective. He highlighted the increasing pollution in Mumbai and lamented the losses faced by farmers due to unseasonal rains. Crops such as grapes and onions suffered significant damage, exacerbating the hardships already faced by farmers due to negative central policies.

Expressing concern over the Chief Minister’s absence during the crisis, Thackeray remarked, “I was the Chief Minister, so I know some things. All information is available on the spot.” He further criticized Shinde for leaving the state and questioned the language they would speak in Telangana, where the Chief Minister had reportedly moved.

Thackeray accused the current government of neglecting its responsibilities, stating, “These ghouls who sneak into other people’s houses without taking care of their own house cannot do justice to the state. The state is in the wind.” He metaphorically described the situation as “one flower in two halves, with no idea where the two halves are.”

Highlighting the government’s lack of response to meteorological warnings, Thackeray pointed out the absence of Agriculture Minister Dhananjay Munde during Diwali, despite his promise to not celebrate if crop insurance amounts did not reach farmers before the festival. Thackeray quipped, “They know where they burst firecrackers.”

Taking a dig at Eknath Shinde’s claims of being a son of a poor farmer, Thackeray questioned the authenticity of such statements, pointing out the luxurious lifestyle of the Chief Minister. He urged for equality in agricultural opportunities for all farmers and emphasized the need for government support during agricultural crises.

In conclusion, Thackeray criticized the ruling party’s priorities, noting their involvement in election campaigns in other states while neglecting the concerns and struggles of Maharashtra’s farmers. The press conference shed light on the ongoing challenges faced by the state’s agricultural sector and the apparent inadequacies in the government’s response.
