While venting their anger on the ruling party and the manner in which many issues raised by them from time to time have not been redressed.

He alleged that during their tenure of two years and three months, the condition of farmers, Backward Classes, Tribal, and Minority Community have been ignored and the present ruling party has played the role of opposition of any development of these communities.

The loan waiver of farmers, restructuring of their loans, free seeds to farmers, compensation of the losses incurred due to natural calamities including floods, rains, hailstorms etc and farmer’s suicide have not been redressed by the ruling party.

Nearly 30000 to 40000 workers are rendered unemployed by this demonetization of currency. Many industries have suffered due to the demonetization.

The farm produce is not getting adequate prices. The demonetization has also affected the prices of essential commodities causing problems and looting of common man.

Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil claimed that the ruling party has cheated out by not according reservations to many communities including Muslim community and Dhangar Community.  He went on to say that the present government has not done justice to the Malnourished and poor children too. So much so, that the state government has not even claimed the allocated funds from the Central Government.

The black money which the government claims to have recovered should be used for loan waivers of farmers.
