Solapur: The Baramati congregations have flooded all the places till today. Once again, they are sharing the waters of Ujjain. No matter how much water is given to these churches, their thirst is not quenched. Their attitude is that we want everything and on our own platter. The rest of Maharashtra should always remember him and show them their place, said Devendra Fadnavis, Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Assembly without appointing NCP Chairman Sharad Pawar.

The ‘Jagar Shetkaryancha-Akrosh Maharashtracha’ campaign launched by Rayat Kranti leader Sanghatana Sadabhau Khot on the issue of farmers has come to an end in Tembhurni in Solapur district, the NCP stronghold. Fadnavis was speaking at the time.

Kolhapur: Forced Natural Farming Instead of Chemical Fertilizers in Sri Lanka. This created a food crisis in that country. In India, the central government drastically increased the prices of chemical fertilizers. Raju Shetty, leader of the Swabhimani Shetkari Sanghatana, told reporters here on Saturday (May 21) that the price of chemical fertilizers should be reduced if the situation in India is not like that in Sri Lanka.

Raju Shetty said: “The policies of the central and state governments are responsible for the continuous flooding. After floods, there is a tendency to seek compensation. Farmers must pay crop insurance to obtain adequate compensation. Its cost must be shared by the government and the farmers. Agriculture in Kolhapur and Sangli districts have been devastated by floods twice in the last three years, in 2019 and last year.”

“Basically, the work done by the central and state governments in the name of policy development is responsible for the flooding,” he said. After the floods subside, farmers receive little assistance in the name of compensation. The agitation against him is ignored. As an alternative to this, farmers should no longer have to pay compensation to the government, but should get money from insurance companies,” Raju Shetty demanded.

The central government has decided to reduce excise taxes on gasoline and diesel in the wake of the increased policy. On Saturday, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman tweeted about it. “We are reducing the central excise duty by Rs 8 per liter on petrol and Rs 6 per liter on diesel. This will reduce petrol by Rs 9.5 per litre, and diesel by Rs 7 per litre, Sitharaman said. After this, the leader of The Devendra opposition has attacked the Thackeray government following this decision.

Many thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman for the decision to reduce the central tax on petrol and diesel by Rs 8 and Rs 6 per litre, respectively! For this, the central government will bear a charge of Rs 1 lakh crore every year. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government has also decided to give a subsidy of Rs 200 per cylinder to recipients of Pradhan Mantri Ujwala Yojana, thus a financial burden of Rs 6,100 crore will be incurred,” said Devendra Fadnavis.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has once again shown that the Modi government at the Center is the common man’s government in this country. The welfare of the poor is a very important issue for them and they constantly fight for it. He has given the same answer once again from these decisions. Now, I once again request the Chief Minister and the Government of Maharashtra to take the initiative to reduce the taxes on gasoline and diesel and provide more relief to the common man. Because the rates in Maharashtra are the highest. The ruling parties do not want to sit in the streets, they want to give relief to the people,” Fadnavis said.
