Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Thursday slammed Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray, without taking his name and said that he should sit home and write essays, reported the PTI.


Devendra Fadnavis stated that a man who did not come out of his house during his tenure as chief minister was now talking about what he has done and what he would have done had he remained on the post.


"The former chief minister should sit home and write essays,: Devendra Fadnavis said, according to the PTI.


"Sometimes we have to write essays on what if I was a bird, what if I was a cricketer etc. There is a person in this state who says I have done this, I would have done this if I was chief minister. He did not come out of his house when he was CM for two-and-half-years," Devendra Fadnavis said in a swipe at Uddhav Thackeray, as per the PTI.

"He should just sit home and write essays. We will serve the people," said Devendra Fadnavis, who had visited Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar district of Maharashtra for the ground breaking ceremony of Gangapur lift irrigation project in Arapur, the news agency reported.

The project will bring 25,000 hectares of land in 40 villages under irrigation, with water being supplied through drip, making it the only project of its type, Devendra Fadnavis said.

"The project was sanctioned in September 2023 and we had resolved to start work on it by January. Funds have been made available. We will also sanction a solar power plant to provide electricity for this project," the Deputy CM said.

A total of Rs 5,000 crores has been sanctioned for irrigation projects in the last 18 months, he said, adding water from the Krishna river valley will come to Marathwada in 18 months.

Meanwhile, the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena (UBT) mouthpiece Saamana on Thursday said that the Constitution has been trampled upon while referring to Disqualification pleas verdict on Wednesday, the PTI reported.

According to the PTI, the Shiv Sena (UBT) on Thursday targeted by Maharashtra assembly speaker Rahul Narwekar for recognising Chief Minister Eknath Shinde-led party as the "real" Shiv Sena.

The people of the state will not forgive those behind this, an editorial in the Sena (UBT) mouthpiece 'Saamana' said that while also targeting the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
