Fadnavis denies Anant Kumar Hegde’s claim about central funds

Fadnavis denies Anant Kumar Hegde’s claim about central funds

Nagpur, Dec 2 (UNI) Former chief minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis on Monday denied his party colleague Anant Kumar Hegde’s claim that he was made the chief minister despite not having a majority to prevent central funds worth Rs 40,000 crore from being misused.

'I have not heard what Anant Kumar Hegde has said, but from what I have heard from the media that Maharashtra government gave Rs 40,000 crore to the central government, is completely false,' Mr Fadnavis said.

Fadnavis further said that in the bullet train project, the role of the Maharashtra government is limited to land acquisition. 'Whether it is bullet train or something else, neither central government asked for money from Maharashtra government and nor the state government gave.'

'This statement is completely false. Nothing happened like this. I have not taken any such decision. The Finance department should do investigation this and bring the truth in front of the people,' he added.

Hegde had claimed that Fadnavis was made Maharashtra Chief Minister to prevent central funds worth Rs 40,000 crore, from being misused by the Maha Vikas Aghadi(MVA) alliance of Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress.
