Uddhav to tour drought-hit areas as Modi visits State

first_imgOn a day when Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to start a slew of development projects in Solapur, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray will visit the drought-affected Marathwada on Wednesday. Mr. Thackeray will distribute relief material and cattle fodder to farmers in Beed and Jalna districts and take stock of the relief work in the area. His visit is on the same day when Mr. Modi will be in western Maharashtra launching a number of projects. “Uddhavji is more focused on ensuring drought relief material reaches farmers. Therefore he will be paying a personal visit,” a Sena minister from the State Cabinet said. The Sena is also keen on presenting itself as deeply involved in drought relief work, and wants to concentrate on the Beed and Jalna Lok Sabha seats. The BJP and Sena, despite being allies, have been engaged in a war of words, with each party boasting of its ability to defeat the other in the election. Commenting on BJP president Amit Shah’s statement that the BJP would defeat whoever chose not to ally with it, Environment Minister Ramdas Kadam said on Tuesday, “We are capable of defeating whoever comes in our way.” Maharashtra is staring at one of the worst droughts in recent years, with only 43.68% water storage in all of the State’s dams in comparison to 61.71% last year. Marathawada is the worst affected, with only 15.14% water in its dams, compared to 55.09% in 2018.last_img
