Rane criticises Deshmukh for approving land for VideoconAugust 5th, 2008 - 9:46 pm ICT by ANI
Mumbai, Aug 5 (ANI): Maharashtra Revenue Minister Narayan Rane today launched a fresh attack on functioning of Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh, and alleged that he is serving the interests of one man.
Rane also threatened to quit Vilasrao Deshmukh-led coalition government.
This government is not for the common man but to serve the interests of one man, Rane told reporters here.
The immediate provocation for Ranes tirade against Deshmukh is apparently the approval of land allotment for Videocon groups Rs. 8,000 crore Liquid Crystal Display panel manufacturing project by the state cabinet on Tuesday.
During the Cabinet meeting, Rane was apparently involved in a verbal duel with the Chief Minister, saying that the land for the project is being given at a far lesser price than the market price.
I will meet Congress high command soon and offer to resign from this government which is not doing anything for the common man but working to further interests of industrialists, Rane said. (ANI)
