Monsoon Session: Opposition greets Maharashtra CM with slogans on loan waiver

MUMBAI/Nagpur: The Monsoon Session of Maharashtra Legislature got off to a noisy start here today, with opposition members flaying the BJP-led government over “apathy” on loan waiver for farmers.

The opposition members, led by leaders of opposition in both Houses — Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil and Dhananjay Munde — shouted slogans against the government at the entrance of Vidhan Bhawan as soon as CM Devendra Fadnavis reached there.

“How many more sacrifices of farmers do you need ?” read one of the many banners which the opposition legislators carried.

Former deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar was also among the opposition legislators who staged a protest at the entrance of the building.
