Thackeray's opposition to Nagpur session shows anti-Vidarbha 20.4.2018 General News
A BJP MLA from Vidarbha has termed Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray's opposition to holding the monsoon session of the state legislature in Nagpur as "prejudice against Vidarbha". Ashish Deshmukh, the BJP MLA from Katol, said that when Vidarbha merged with the Maharashtra, it was decided that at least six weeks of the legislature's sessions would be in Nagpur. "However it has never been happened and successive governments have held the monsoon session in Nagpur for just two weeks as a formality," he alleged. "There is no basis for Thackeray's statement that decisions on Vidarbha's interests can be taken sitting in Mumbai. If all decisions about Vidarbha could have been taken from Mumbai, then development would have reached districts like Gondia and Gadchiroli which are 1,400 kilometres away from Mumbai," he said. "Most of the districts that comprise Vidarbha are backward. Thackeray's statement shows his anti-Vidarbha stance," Deshmukh said. He said that Chief Minister ..
