CM hits out at Chavan for politicising water crisis

Aurangabad: Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Saturday hit out at Maharashtra Congress chief Ashok Chavan for allegedly politicising the issue of water-scarcity in the state.
“The ‘Jan Sangharsh Yatra’ (public campaign) being launched by the Congress is not supported by commoners.
The campaign has failed miserably,” he said.
Speaking with the reporters on the sideline of his official visit tour in Jalna, Fadnavis said the state government would leave no stone unturned to tackle the water crisis situation.
The chief minister also took stock of the water-scarcity situation as a part of the series of official meetings being held by him in worst-affected districts across the state.
Being asked whether the BJP-led state government is protecting culprits behind the multi-crore irrigation scam, Fadnavis refuted charges of shielding anybody.
“The SIT is probing the scam under the supervision of the court.
The chargesheet has been also filed in the matter,” he said.
Earlier, a few NCP workers faced the wrath of the police for trying to breach the security protocol in an attempt to meet the chief minister for handing over a memorandum of their demands.
Police had to resort to lathi charge when the workers forcefully tried to enter the venue where Fadnavis was scheduled to hold a meeting.
