Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday alleged there is a conspiracy to defame the state and said his government is working effectively to tackle the Covid-19 pandemic.

In his 40-minute long video address, the Shiv Sena chief did not directly mention the Kangana Ranaut controversy, Sushant Singh Rajput death case, related drugs case of Rhea Chakraborty or the attack on a former Navy officer, who has demanded President’s rule in Maharashtra. However, Uddhav Thackeray said there have been several storms in the past including political ones, “but I’m capable of handling political storms”.

Avoiding making any statements on the recent controversies his government has been involved in, the Maharashtra CM focused his address on Covid-19 and farmers.

Uddhav Thackeray said, “Some people may feel that now corona is over, and they should start their politics again. I will not talk about politics but there is a conspiracy to discredit Maharashtra. My silence doesn’t mean that I don’t have answers.”

“We are launching a campaign ‘my family-my responsibility’ to fight the Covid-19 pandemic,” Uddhav Thackeray said.

“I thank the people of Maharashtra from all religions for their support during difficult times. This was the times of festivities for all religions. Everyone maintained restrain,” he said. “We have increased 3.60 lakh beds across the state,” he added.

The CM insisted that morchas and protests on Maratha quota should not be organised issue during a global pandemic.

Uddhav Thackeray also said, “We have waived loans of 29.5 lakh farmers. We have procured record cotton this year. We are starting a new scheme for farmers ‘vikel te pikel’ – grow what sells.

“We will provide seeds to farmers based on the demand in global and national market. The agriculture department will conduct research on the demand. This will result in surety in sale of agri produce,” he further said.
