    CM rips apart Oppn charges on various issues, including scams, in a last day blitz

    Nagpur: Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, in a last day blitz, ripped apart all charges and allegations leveled by Opposition on various issues during the Winter Session of Maharashtra Legislature.

    No scams:
    “My Government is transparent. The Opposition’s claim of Rs 4000 crore dal (pulse) scam is nothing but a fragment of imagination. The production of dal declined by 55 percent due to various reasons. The imported pulse first comes to Maharashtra. The commodity was seized after imposing stock limit. Total of 87,000 metric tonnes of dal was seized out which the stock of tur dal was 13,000 metric tonnes. Those traders who gave guarantee letters were returned of seized dal and it was sold in markets. The State Agriculture Minister has initiated several measures to ensure that such problems do not recur in future. The Government has neither purchased dal nor sold the seized stocks. Then where is dal scam? The State Government has decided to enact Price Control Act. We have come to power for people and not for traders,” quipped the Chief Minister.

    Crime situation in State:
    Speaking on crime situation and law and order, Fadnavis said that there is 16 percent decline in serious crimes such as murders, dacoities etc as compared to same period last year. Directives have been issued to register cases pertaining to women and children on priority and then investigate thoroughly. Other crimes of various natures have declined sharply. Safety and security of womenfolk has been enhanced by initiating a slew of measures in this regard. Citizens can see women police personnel deployed at all police stations. Help of Apps is being undertaken for safety and security of women. Till to date, 1.87 lakh people have downloaded the Apps. Similarly, excesses against Dalits too have registered a decline solely because of preventive actions in larger scale, stated the Chief Minister.

    Nagpur scenario:
    Informing the House on Nagpur crime situation, Fadnavis said that there is a notable decline in crimes of serious nature such as murders, attempt to murder, riots, assaults on Government servants etc. However, the Chief Minister said, crimes against women have gone up. But 90 percent of crimes have been committed by relatives or known persons. These persons have been or are being booked for rapes among other crimes. Preventive actions have been initiated in Nagpur in greater magnitude. As a result the crime graph is showing a declining trend, said Fadnavis.

    Heavy hand against criminals:
    “The Opposition parties must be feeling uneasy over the fact that investment is pouring in Nagpur. These parties are hatching conspiracies to stall the investments. The criminals will be dealt with firmly. Not a single city will be allowed to become ‘Crime City.’ If 100 offenders are caught, 48 are convicted. This change has come in the past one year and will continue as well. In the past one year, two policemen were martyred in Naxal attacks but at the same time, 51 Naxals surrendered. All were hardcore extremists. The C-60 Commando Units in Naxal-infested areas are doing an exemplary work,” declared the Chief Minister.

    Dance Bars:
    Dwelling on the issue of dance bars, Fadnavis said that Maharashtra Government is principally opposed to dance bars in state. However, the orders of Supreme Court in allowing the dance bars will have to be followed. A new law will be required to enact to curb ‘menace.’ The State Advocate General is being consulted on Supreme Court’s directives over new rules and regulations regarding opening of dance bars. The dance bar owners will have to install CCTV and the live clips will have to be handed over to local police. The Mumbai cops have rejected 34 applications seeking permission to open dance bars, informed Fadnavis.

    The Chief Minister also dwelt on various issues raised in the House during Winter Session such as installation of CCTVs in Mumbai and other important cities, online FIR facilities in all the police stations across the state. “This Government has set up 49 new police stations in which 12043 posts will be created and recruited shortly. The police stations functioning from rented places in Nagpur District will given land at the lease rate of Re 1 for construction of their own buildings,” announced Fadnavis.

    “The killers of Pansare and Dabholkar will be traced and punished during the very rule of this government. The institutions indulging illegal act will not be protected. The thriving criminals and their activities of the past 15 years could not be ended in one year. The Opposition leaders who are facing probes are leveling unfounded charges against the Chief Minister for handing over of Home portfolio to others,” concluded Fadnavis.
