When the budget with big relief for farmers was declared, the NCP and Sena left no stones unturned to take the credit. But the Congress Party failed to speak about the relief on time. Finally a press meet was called by Revenue Minister Narayan Rane. Narayan Rane once again went into attacking mode on CM Vilasrao Deshmukh as he voiced concern over the fact that despite Congress playing the crucial role at the center to declare the relief package to farmers, the Congress Party in Maharashtra was left behind in spreading the same here. Narayan Rane did not miss the chance to attack Uddhav Thackeray either. While Narayan Rane said that the UPA government had taken a historic decision in the relief package for farmers, he however said that they could not guarantee that there will be no farmer suicides after this. While each party has taken credit for the relief that the Center has declared for debt ridden farmers across the country, there is no denying that Sena’s Executive President Uddhav Thackeray led rallies and the response they have received in Vidarbha had left NCP and Congress high commands sweating and triggered the package in the first place.
