Maharashtra: This year was full of complications for the Uddhav government, even many issues faced with BJP
National Desk: The Mahavikas Aghadi (MVA) government of Maharashtra's Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress has been battling the covid-19 epidemic throughout the year as well as the BJP on various issues. The ruling coalition and BJP came face to face over the issue of shifting the Mumbai Metro car shed project from Aare to Kanjurmarg. The Bombay High Court, however, stayed the allotment of land in Kanjurmarg for the project. This year, Shiv Sena's attitude towards 'Hindutva' also softened and Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray said to take everyone along.
Tough dialogue between
Bhagat Singh Kosari and Thackeray There was a very bitter dialogue between Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari and Thackeray on the issue of reopening the shrines closed due to the epidemic in the state. Koshyari, in a letter to Thackeray, taunted and asked whether he had become 'secular' by refusing to reopen religious places. At the same time, in response to this, Thackeray said that he did not want a certificate of Hindutva from anyone. After Koshiyari's letter, NCP chief Sharad Pawar wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying, "I am shocked to know that the Governor's letter has been released in the media."
The kind of language used by the Shiv Sena and NCP in the government letter formed together is not appropriate for the person sitting in the constitutional post. After the elections last year, Shiv Sena and NCP formed a coalition and formed a government, which no one was expecting. The Congress, which finished fourth in the assembly elections, found itself isolated. According to a Congress leader, some people in the state unit of the party feel that if it had demanded the post of Deputy Chief Minister instead of the post of Assembly Speaker, the MVA government would have been a genuine trilateral government. A Shiv Sena leader said that Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray trusts NCP leader Ajit Pawar a lot because of his administrative acumen.
Pawar returned to the MVA after forming a three-day government with former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis last year after the death of Sushant Singh . The Maharashtra government's cabinet was formed on December 30 last year and the government received just three months after the epidemic started spreading in the state. The concept was strengthening that the Thackeray government was dealing with the epidemic well when the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput led to a resurgence of conflict between the state government and the BJP when Rajput and celebrity media manager Disha Salian's death In the case, efforts were made to name the state minister and Thackeray's son Aditya Thackeray. Mumbai Police said that Rajput's death is a case of suicide but many speculations and stories have surfaced on social media about the incident.
Kangwal Ranaut's tweet created a ruckus
against the actor's family friend Riya Chakraborty and his family members and accused them of grabbing Rajput's money and abetting them to suicide. Actress Kangana Ranaut became active in the anti-state government campaign on social media and tweeted in protest against Shiv Sena, Uddhav Thackeray and Aditya Thackeray. At the party's Dussehra rally, without naming Runaut, Thackeray said that those who are demanding "justice" are calling the Mumbai police useless, calling Mumbai "Pakistan-occupied Kashmir" and saying Are that there are addicts everywhere - they are creating this kind of image.
On the arrest of journalist Arnab Goswami in a case of inciting suicide questions raised by the arrest of Arnab Goswami, BJP said that the state government is taking revenge from its critics. At the same time, in another incident, Shiv Sena-led Mumbai Municipal Corporation demolished the alleged illegal construction of Ranaut in Bandra. Along with this, the Mumbai Police revealed the alleged TRP scam in which Republic Media Network was named and some officials of this channel were arrested. Former BJP leaders Eknath Khadse and Jai Singh Rao Gaekwad joined the NCP this year. The Maharashtra cabinet decided to give the status of economically backward class to the Maratha community. Earlier, the Supreme Court had banned the reservation of Maratha community under socially and economically weaker category.
