"People will vote for good governance and stable government. They will vote for BJP and we will get an absolute majority in the state Assembly elections. People are fed-up with Congress-NCP rule," Javadekar told reporters in Nashik during party's poll campaigning.

The senior BJP leader alleged that the law and order system in the state worsened during Home Minister R R Patil's regime and that he failed to handle situations of crisis.

He alleged that though Maharashtra has ample water but the outgoing government failed to provide it to the farmers.

"BJP has always stood behind farmers and poor. We have plans to provide them employment, education, housing and health," he said.

After snapping ties with its 25-year old ally Shiv Sena, Javadekar said that they tried the best to save the alliance.

"We tried our best.. but we will not criticize them (Sena)," he said.

Replying to a query on price of onions which rolled down at different Nashik APMC markets due to import of the commodity, the minister said that import (of onions) has stopped as orders placed by the government are completed.

On being asked on status of regional parties in the state, he said that they are working closely with the allies, who were the part of the 'grand alliance'.

Javadekar was in the city to address a rally being held this evening under party's 'Mulukh Maidan' campaign for the state assembly polls.
