In 3.5 days as CM, here is what Devendra Fadnavis did: Rs 5,380 crore aid for farmers, relief fund cell for poor patients

After resuming the office of Chief Minister, Devendra Fadnavis also restarted the CM's relief fund cell, which grants economic assistance to poor patients.

Hours after taking oath as the chief minister of the state for the second time, BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis sanctioned financial assistance of Rs 5380 crores to the farmers afflicted by the unseasonal rains in the state. This amount is in addition to the first instalment of Rs 2059 crores released last week.

According to the state estimates, Rs 8200 crores worth of crop losses happened in the month of October due to unseasonal rains. The monetary aide approved by Devendra Fadnavis in his second stint as the chief minister was aimed to address this pressing issue.

Following this, Fadnavis also chaired a meeting to deliberate upon the ‘Climate Resilience Improvement and Flood and Drought Management Program’ with the World Bank officials. He instructed the proposal to be placed for cabinet clearance. “Out of 3500 crores to be spent by the World Bank, 350 crores will be spent on technical assistance,” Fadnavis said. The plan envisages floodwater to be diverted to drought-prone region. Fadnavis also presided over the ‘Smart Village’ discussion, which constitutes connecting 20 lakh farmers to corporates, providing them with better opportunities.

After resuming the office of Chief Minister, Devendra Fadnavis also restarted the CM’s relief fund cell, which grants economic assistance to poor patients. Fadnavis signed a cheque of Rs 1.2 lakh for Kusum Vengurlekar, who is ailing from Cancer at the Dhanwantri hospital in Dadar.

Fadnavis sworn-in as chief minister early Saturday morning while NCP’s Ajit Pawar took oath as the deputy chief minister of the state. However, soon after the development, NCP supremo Sharad Pawar said that the NCP has not extended its support to the BJP. Amidst the political turmoil, Ajit Pawar today resigned as the deputy chief minister of the state and before long Devendra Fadnavis too tendered his resignation to the Governor of the state. It is being speculated that the Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress alliance will be staking a claim at the government with Uddhav Thackeray becoming the new chief minister tomorrow morning.
