Sena CM-led Maha govt to be in place by Dec 1st week: Raut

New Delhi: Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said here on Wednesday that the clouds over the government formation efforts in Maharashtra shall clear within a couple of days or so.

“There are certain internal processes of the different parties — Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party and Congress — which are currently on. A Sena-Chief Minister-led government will assume office by the first week of December,” Raut asserted.

Replying to a question that attempts are being made to lure legislators on different sides, Raut dismissed the contentions saying such theories are a conspiracy of those who don’t want to see a Shiv Sena government.

“In the Sena, the decision making is faster as it comes from the top to bottom, in NCP, the chief sounds out the party on taking a certain decision democratically and takes a little longer. The Congress has its own century-plus old traditions of arriving at any decision. The picture will start clearing from tomorrow,” Raut assured.

To a question whether Sena President Uddhav Thackeray will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Sena MP said “for the cause of the farmers, he will go and meet anybody” to ensure that the state’s disaster-hit peasantry gets maximum help and relief.

Political sources in Mumbai indicate that despite speculation and impatience in some circles, most issues have been finalized among the three parties, and it is only a matter of time before they announce their alliance and complete the government formation process.

New Delhi: Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi has slammed the government for rise in onion and petrol prices. The price of petrol crossed Rs 75 mark and that of onion has risen to Rs 200 a kg in some parts of the country, according to reports.

Priyanka Gandhi tweeted, “The inflation has made the life of common man worse, prices of onion have crossed Rs 200 in some parts and petrol has crossed Rs 75, but the BJP government is in sleeping mode”.

The prices of essential commodities including the onion which is an important vegetable in Indian Household, have been moving north for quite some time.

Last week Parliament saw a heated debate on the issue of onion price between the treasury and opposition benches, mainly the Congress, with its leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury making remarks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Ministers Amit Shah and Nirmala Sitharaman.

Chowdhury said, “There is a fire inside the markets across the whole country as the prices of all items have been increasing, especially onion. Centre imports onion on the price of Rs 67 per kg which it is being sold in the market at the price of Rs 130-140 per kg,”

The government says that the price of onion is rising due to unseasonal rain which damaged the crops in many parts of the country. The imported onion will only be available by the first or second week of January.
