NCP member and Leader of Opposition in the Legislative Council Dhananjay Munde claimed 189 farmers committed suicide in Maharashtra in January alone and alleged the government is misguiding the courts by stating false numbers.
"While the Prime Minister is coming here to inaugurate 'Make in India Week', he also needs to showcase farmers' suicides in Maharashtra to global leaders," he said.
The Prime Minister launches the 'Make in India Week' event here on February 13. Munde also alleged the Maharashtra government is ignoring serious drought the state is facing.
"The CM had, on June 11, 2015, said he would chair a Cabinet meeting in Aurangabad and bring about a solution to the drought in Marathwada," Munde said here.
"Urban areas in Latur district don't receive drinking water for 20 days, Beed district (doesn't receive water) for 15 days, while Parbhani district receives water once in eight days," Munde said, adding the distribution of water in rural areas is worse.
