VJAS alleges Maharashtra economy is facing a free fall
Kishore Tiwari of VJAS has asked the central government to review the economic crisis in Maharashtra due to uncontrolled expenditure of the state government. He also alleged policy failure and corruption in the system.
EVEN AS Maharashtra is celebrating the golden jubilee year, the economy of the state is in a crisis, and tall claims of the government that the state is set on a path of development and economic growth is a farce, according to Vidarbha Jan Andolan Samiti (VJAS).
VJAS further alleged that while the Congress-lead state government is hankering after more industries coming to the state, the reality is that a large number of heavy and labour-oriented units have shifted to neigbouring Gujarat.
VJAS has further said that flagship project of the state 'MIHAN' has failed to take off in Nagpur.
Vidarbha Jan Andolan Samiti(VJAS) president Kishor Tiwari said that state government was promoting the neo-globalisation agenda of multi-national corporations. He, however, said that policies and practices of the Maharashtra government were proving to be anti-farmer and anti-people causing much distress to the agrarian section of the society.
The government, he said, was steeped in corruption and the politicians were least worried about the future of the state and the common man. Tiwari further said that the major crops such as cotton and sugarcane had suffered badly but the state government had done nothing to improve the lot of farmers.
All the programmes run by the government including NRHM, MGREGA, AIBP and funds allotted for social welfare are being siphoned off and rest of what is left is used to pay salaries, the VJAS leader alleged.
He further warned of economic collapse of the state as finances were in doldrums and agriculture was on the verge of breakdown.
VJAS has drawn the attention towards the drought like situation in more than 50,000 villages in the state that has effected sharp drop in Kharif and Rabi crop, and the first food production is likely to drop below 94 lakh MT for the first time in history of Maharashtra.
VJAS further alleged that compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) for the last five years for investments in registered and commissioned projects is shown to be more than 17 and 3 per cent, respectively, which is not correct.
