Chief Minister and BJP MLA given to flood victims
Opponents have made it an issue after the Chief Minister and the MLA’s photo was printed on bags of food grains and food items being given to the flood victims in Maharashtra. Actually, people were given food bags in flood-affected Sangli district of Maharashtra. On this, the opposition says that the state government is shamelessly advertising itself keeping in mind the impending election. These bags, distributed to the flood-affected people, contain rice and wheat on which a sticker has also been affixed.
It has a picture of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and BJP MLA Suresh Halwankar printed on it. A caption has also been written on the photo (August 2019) free rice and wheat distributed to the flood-affected families.
Calling the allegation as false, the MLA said that the opposition is accusing them because of the way the government has provided quick assistance to the flood-affected people, they have no issues with them.
The MLA, while defending the installation of bags sticker, said that this step will help the affected people to know that this grain is being given free of cost from the government.
