Uddhav Thackeray who was sworn-in as the 18th Chief Minister of Maharashtra on Thursday chaired the first meeting of the new cabinet at Sahyadri Guest House in Mumbai. After the meeting, the Maharashtra CM, accompanied by his cabinet colleagues Chhagan Bhujbal, Jayant Patil, Balasaheb Thorat, and Nitin Raut, held a press conference.
Thackeray said the first decision taken by the government is allocation of Rs. 20 crores for maintenance and conservation of Raigad Fort-the capital of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. He ensured assistance to farmers will be provided after the assessment of present schemes, and the government will work towards creating an atmosphere where there would not be any fear.
“I am happy to tell you all that the first decision that this cabinet has taken is to approve Rs 20 Crores for the development of Raigad which was the capital of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj,” said the Maharashtra CM.
“I have asked officials to provide me with complete information on state and centre schemes for farmers, in the next two days. Once I get all the details, I will make a decision accordingly,” Uddhav Thackeray further added.
“I want to assure the people of the state that we will give a good government. I want to help the farmers in a manner which will make them happy,” Thackeray asserted.
Farmers have been given primary importance in the Common Minimum Programme (CMP) of the Maha Vikas Aghadi or the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress alliance. CMP mentions immediate loan waiver, assistance to farmers affected by premature rains and floods, revision of crop insurance program, as the measures to provide relief to the farmers of Maharashtra.0 Replies to “Uddhav Focuses on Revival of Raigad Fort and Compensation for Farmers in 1st Cabinet Meeting”
