Time has come to pull down govt: Ajit Pawar

Sangli, Apr 5 (UNI) Former deputy chief minister and NCP leader Ajit Pawar has accused the BJP-led Central, as well as the state government, of making hollow promises to the people, saying the time has come to pull down both.

Addressing the "Hallabol" rally on late Wednesday night at Station Chowk of the city, Mr Pawar said Prime Minister Narendra Modi and State Chief Minister Devendra Phadnavis betrayed the people by showing them many false dreams.

Poor people are becoming poorer, while the rich are becoming richer in their regime, since the last four years, he alleged.

He said the state government has failed on all fronts, while corruption is increasing in all sectors.

Showing dreams to the poor farmers, they captured the power and now they are neglecting them, Mr Pawar alleged, adding that intervening in religion, the government was trying to create crookedness in different religious groups.

He further alleged that incidents of violence like Bhima-Koregain showed lack of political will power.

NCP state president Sunil Tatkare in his address said that party president Sharad Pawar had remitted Rs 71,000 crore farmers loan and the ryots were now feeling discontented about the government's loan wave scheme, and now there was a need a leadership for the country such as Mr Sharad Pawar, who could give proper direction to the country.

District leaders, including coporators and ZP members, attended the rally.
