Pune: BJP MLA Ashish Shelar has taken issue with his statement made two days ago, saying that Devendra Fadnavis will be the Chief Minister if the Bharatiya Janata Party returns to power in the state. At a book launch event in Mumbai, Shelar had expressed her hope that a capable Maratha woman would become the Chief Minister. He was later criticized for his remarks on Saturday.
Shelar had come for the campaign of BJP candidate Sangram Deshmukh from Pune graduate constituency. He was talking at the time. BJP city president Jagdish Mulik, Rajesh Pandey etc. were present on this occasion. All women in society should be given a fair and supreme place. I am of this opinion. That was the subject of the book. He also clarified that if BJP comes to power in the state, Devendra Fadnavis will be the Chief Minister.
Shelar criticized the Thackeray government of Mahavikas Aghadi for being runaway and dependent. Also, on the question of the people, the answer is that the Thackeray government of the BJP is running away or we are dependent. Each question points to the other. In other states, he helped the Balutedars along with the farmers. However, the Mahavikas Aghadi government did not provide any assistance. Shelar blamed the government for being inefficient.
The Mahavikas Aghadi had given an ultimatum to the Governor on November 21 regarding the names of 12 seats in the Legislative Assembly to be suggested from the Governor’s quota. Asked about this, Shelar said, “What is the attitude of giving an ultimatum to the governor? There is no time limit in the law.” He said at the time that he was going to honor the governor.
The demand to open temples before opening pubs and bars is not wrong. If it can be opened by adding rules. So why the temples were not opened with rules. MSEDCL has done a good job during the Devendra Fadnavis government. The increase in arrears is due to the payment of arrears to farmers. If this government does not care about the farmers, then the knot is with us. Shelar gave such a warning to the state government.
