Sena takes a dig at Fadnavis over Mahad tragedy

Mumbai: Shiv Sena today took potshots at Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis over the Mahad tragedy, saying he should stop aerial visits to mishap sites and demanded Guardian ministers be barred from flying inside the state to understand its road and bridge conditions.

The Sena also said the present government's ambitious 'Make in Maharashtra' programme should begin with construction of good quality roads and bridges, in the absence of which no foreign nation would be willing to invest there.

"Instead of indulging in blame game and only conducting meetings to gauge the Mahad tragedy, what is needed is to give a serious thought over the issue.

Also, if the CM really wants to understand the situation of roads and bridges in the state and conduct a proper audit, he, along with other ministers need to shun planes and helicopters while touring the state," the party said in an editorial in its mouthpiece 'Saamana'.
