Aurangabad, Maharashtra, Apr 10 UNI | 3 months ago

Shiv sena president Uddhav Thackeray appealed to the rain-affected farmers in the state to not take extreme steps like suicide and pull down the present government who was the responsible for it.

Addressing an election campaing rally last night at Parbhani in support of party nominee and sitting MLA Bandu Jadhv, he said the panic stricken farmers who lost their crops in the recent havoc of hailstorm rains in the region as well as in the state committed suicide for being debt ridden.

He charged that when the farmers were committing suicide in the past months Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar was busy in election campaign instead of helping them.

He said the people of the Parbhani always had love for Sena and so he appealed to the voters once to vote in favour of Mr Jadhav.

In the history of Parbhani Lok Sabha election those candidates who were elected on Sena tickets were later deserted from the party and joined Congress and NCP.

They are Suresh Jadhav, Tukarm Rege-Patil and Ganesh Dudgaonkar were now working hard for NCP nominee Vijay Bamble.

Hence, he called Mr Jadhav and asked him to take an oath in front of voters that he will not quit the party.
