Mumbai, Mar 15 : Leader of the opposition in the state assembly Eknath Khadse today alleged that even as the state was reeling under severe drought, a tender has been floated in a city paper, asking for supply of high quality food to Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan and Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar at their residence for Rs 100 crore.

The allegation was made as Mr Khadse participated in the discussion on the thanks giving motion on the Governor's address.

Criticising the tender, Mr Khadse said it invited for serving 'high quality' food for one year when the state was facing severe drought.

He also hit out at the state administration for incidents of rape and attack on dalits at Shrirampur, Bhandara and other places.

Mr Khadse lashed out at the state government for not giving due share even while allocating ministries to Vidarbha, Marathwada and north Maharashtra and said that less important portfolios were given to these areas.

He also alleged that many ministers were facing allegations and even FIRs were registered against them but still they continue to be in the ministry. He mentioned Rajendra Darda, Gulabrao Deokar, Dr Vijaykumar Gavit, as those who are facing severe allegations but continued to be in the ministry.
