Maharashtra BJP chief Chandrakant Patil said that Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray was moving out of his house as he was constantly criticized by the opposition party for not leaving due to the epidemic.
Shri Thackeray is scheduled to visit flood affected areas in Solapur district on Monday.
Mr. Patil said, “A government can be run only by being on the field as it helps in taking quick decisions. Not all decisions can be taken through video conferencing.”
He said that Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly Devendra Fadnavis will visit the flood affected parts of the state for 800 km from Monday.
“We expect that financial support will be provided at the earliest. A wet drought should be declared. Panchnama (assessment) is not possible as everything is destroyed,” he said.
Mr. Patil criticized the Shiv Sena-led Maha Vikas Agadi (MVA) government for seeking central assistance to combat coronoviruses, cyclones and floods.
“What will you do? Do you anticipate loss and damage and have given a memorandum to the Center?” He asked.
