Mumbai: Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) has criticised MNS chief Raj Thackeray for instructing his partymen to work towards the drought-affected people even as he himself relaxes at home.
"It is not only a pity but unfortunate that Raj Thackeray measures the depth of river Krishna (in Satara district) by standing in the 'verandah' (open gallery) in Krushnakunj (Raj's residence)," MPCC spokesperson Sachin Sawant said in a press release.
"He is giving orders from his residence to his party office-bearers to provide water and fodder for animals and is even giving diktat to MLAs from desisting foreign trips," Sawant said.
However, Raj has not actually visited drought-affected people to assess their condition, he rued.
"It seems that he is busy designing the blue-print on the development of Maharashtra. If Maharashtra is to progress like this then it is unfortunate for people of the state, he added.
