Aurangabad: Former Maharashtra Chief Minister and PWD Minister, Ashok Chavan on Monday appealed to the Congress party workers to work hard along with each other to solve the burning issues which the people of the state were facing under the BJP rule.
Chavan who was addressing party workers last night at the newly constructed Gandhi Bhavan at Shahganj locality said that, the BJP government had passed anti-farmer and anti-labor laws with their strength of more MPs in parliament.
In order to prevent the BJP from passing any law solely on the strength of their parliamentary majority, Congress workers will have to work full time, forgetting their differences.
We have to go to the people and solve the burning issues. Sitting at home, accepting flower garland greetings will not work like this.
In the forthcoming Aurangabad Municipal Corporation Elections, the people will elect those candidates who are willing to work to solve the problems.
If the old days of the Congress used to regain, the office bearers and activists will have to work hard to bring back the glory to the district.
Forget what happened and create new enthusiasm and new energy in the same way that Gandhi Bhavan became beautiful without looking back.
Your responsibility has increased while you are in government. Public works should be carried out diligently. Work hard to strengthen the organization, he said.
He further said that there is a major issue of water and development facing the city. He told the workers to concentrate on that, and added that the Congress aims to give reservation to the Maratha, Muslims and Dhangar community without affecting the reservation of OBCs.
The case of Maratha reservation is in the court. The government will stand firm on that issue. He accused some people of playing politics by spreading misconceptions.
By painting and repairing Gandhi Bhavan he lauded the district party chief Dr Kalyan Kale and City President Hisham Osmani.
On this occasion, State Vice President, Prakash Mugadia, former District President Anil Patel, former City President Ibrahim Pathan among several others were present.
