Taking potshots at the Prime Minister Narendra Modi without naming him, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray today said "a dry Marathwada" was left behind after "the wave" had passed.

"Where have the big political leaders who roamed from village to village addressing poll rallies disappeared now? The only thing that remains after the wave is over is a dry Marathwada region. They have forgotten the woes of the people of this region," said Thackeray, speaking at a rally in Jalna.

Modi had campaigned extensively in Maharashtra for the October Assembly polls.

"Two months ago it seemed that a wave had engulfed this region. Big politicians provided solace by making tall promises. Where is the wave now? These politicians will only be seen in photos now," he said.

Thackeray also said he will request the Governor to accompany Shiv Sena MLAs on a tour of the region, so that he can direct the government to take urgent relief steps.

"He (the governor) should see for himself the condition of this region and direct the government to declare it as drought-hit," he said.
