Watch what else is making news:

The Chhatrapati Shivaji memorial project will be taken up in two phases and an approximately Rs 2,300 crores will be spent in the first phase. Expressing his satisfaction on the smooth functioning of Winter Session here, Fadnavis said a record number of 27 bills were taken up for discussion and 23 of them were passed. He said the issues concerning Vidarbha region were given appropriate time.

Fadnavis appealed to all the party legislators from Vidarbha to come together and join hands in development of the region. On the issue of Nagpur-Mumbai Super Communication Expressway which is known as ‘Samruddhi Marg’, he appealed to the legislators from Wardha and Amravati district to come across the table to sort out differences.

“We should learn to forget differences and join together like leaders in western Maharashtra and Konkan to make it (Vidarbha region) a prosperous region,” Fadnavis said. The State government has drawn a roadmap for development of the region, he said.

Meanwhile, Leader of Opposition Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil criticised the state government for not waiving off loans of farmer and not compensating farmers who have suffered huge losses due to the fall in prices following demonetisation. The prices of agriculture products have sharply dropped after the scrapping of old currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1000, he said.
