CM Prithviraj Chavan on Thursday assured MLAs from Vidarbha who met him to air their grievance of neglect of the region that the government will come out with an action taken report (ATR) on socio-economic issues they raised.
MLAs across party lines representing Amravati and Nagpur met Chavan and raised problems related to irrigation, industries, agriculture and infrastructure. When the MLAs complained that the region has been ignored in the new industrial policy and that conditions like high power tariff were a hurdle in setting up industries, he assured them Advantage Vidarbha, an event next month to attract investment, will bring in the much-needed development.
Chavan first met MLAs from Amravati and later MLAs from Nagpur.
BJP MLA Devendra Fadnavis raised the matter of irrigation projects getting stuck owing to investigations into the alleged scam. "In a drought scenario, we asked the government to continue projects that have no problems. The CM did not give any concrete assurances but said that an Action Taken Report based on minutes of the meeting will be soon given to us," said Fadnavis.
