Former Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar came down heavily on the Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis over his statement that he would continue to lead the state in the next term as well after the 2019 Assembly polls.

A couple of days ago, Fadnavis had said that people should not worry about the continuous flow of funds for development, as he will be continuing in the next term as well. Targeting the CM over his statement, Pawar said, “People in Marathwada are facing drought and the Chief Minister, instead of taking action, is talking about another term. He is daydreaming and nothing else.”

Attacking the BJP government over a string of issues, ranging from the safety of women to restrictions on food habits of people, Pawar said, “The ruling dispensation wanted to impose emergency in the country, and stressed the need to save the Constitution of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar. Women are not feeling safe. BJP leaders like Ram Kadam wants the youths to elope with girls. They are misusing power. This government is incapable of ruling the state.”

The NCP leader also took a dig on state government's apathy over the farmers' issue. “The situation in some districts is very grim and the government has no time to look in to it,” Pawar pointed out.
