Congress legislators in Maharashtra complain about ChavanJuly 24th, 2012 - 8:19 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, July 24 (IANS) Complaining about several “issues” they have with Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan, over 40 Congress legislators requested the state party chief to intervene.
As many as 42 legislators have written to Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) president Manikrao Thakre and sought his intervention. They have cited issues like lack of clearances for infrastructure projects, delay in filling administrative posts and release of grants for development work in their constituencies.
Thakre, however, said that the legislators are worried about incomplete work in their constituencies and are not against the chief minister.
“Let it be clear, nobody is against the chief minister. No MLA (legislator) has complained to me about his functioning,” he told media persons here.
“The letter I have got is with regards to the problems these MLAs are facing in their constituencies. I have spoken to the CM about it and their work will be done,” he added.
Another party official close to Chavan also refused to comment on the development. “There is no such concern amongst Congress legislators,” the official maintained.
According to sources, the letter dated July 19 has also been sent to AICC secretary Mohan Prakash, who is in charge of the party affairs in Maharashtra.
