Mumbai: The party workers should aggressively expose the failures of the Maharashtra state government before the people, said BJP’s Maharashtra state president Chandrakant Patil while addressing a meeting of the BJP state office bearers on Monday.
Patil said, “During the lockdown period the party workers in Maharashtra participated in a large number of service activities. Now, in the future too, the party workers should help people through various means. The party workers should strive to ensure that there will be a large number of screenings as well as efforts to start segregation centres. Activists must continue to work to serve patients in the best possible way.”
He further stated that at a convention in Navi Mumbai in February, the party had decided to agitate for the farmers to avail the benefit of loan waiver. The party’s agitation forced the government to consider the case of farmers who repay their loans regularly.
“In the future, the workers should start an intense agitation to get the demands of the milk producers accepted. At the same time, it is necessary to inform the people about the mismanagement of the state government. Activists should respond aggressively to the propaganda against their leaders,” he said.
The Maharashtra State organisational secretary Vijayrao Puranik provided information about the upcoming programs to be implemented by the party members. Chandrasekhar Bavankule, state general secretary, moved a resolution condemning the alliance government for failing to address the situation created by the corona and its failure to address the issues of the farmers.
Kisan Morcha chief Dr Anil Bonde and former MLA Sudhakar Bhalerao supported the resolution. Bhalerao said, “This current state government is cheating the farmers and their priorities have changed after they formed government. Initially, their focus on key areas which they were taking were mere playing with people’s emotions.”
