Uddhav

Ever since Eknath Shinde defected from Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena, the political stability of Maharashtra has been thrown into a toss. Mr Shinde is the State Minister of Urban Development and Public Works.

While Mr Shinde’s rebellion has thrown Maharashtra into a political crisis, Uddhav Thackeray and the MVA held onto power despite their ideological differences. Here are the top 5 iconic decisions taken by Uddhav Thackeray in the last three years as a CM.

  • Uddhav Thackeray Approves Rs 20 Crores For Raigad

Soon after taking an oath as the Chief Minister, Uddhav Thackeray announced a Rs 20 crore package for the development of Raigad. Raigad served as the capital for Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.

  • Farmer’s Loan Relief

When CM Uddhav Thackeray came to power, his government constituted a panel to extend the relief to farmers with loans amounting to Rs 2 lakh. While the panel was constituted in good faith, farmers’ organisations had criticised it. They had termed it a betrayal as several farmers had debts of more than Rs 2 lakhs.
