CM Uddhav Thackeray is New, Appears Scared of Taking Action: Devendra Fadnavis
BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis on Thursday accused the Maharashtra government of being "indecisive" in dealing with the COVID-19 crisis and causing the situation to worsen there, and said Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray is "scared" of taking initiatives to deal with the situation.
Private hospitals are charging Rs 30,000 from coronavirus affected patient per day for a bed, and giving these beds to those who have the capacity to pay, the former Maharashtra chief minister said.
He said all this is happening despite the announcement of the state government that 80 per cent of beds in private hospitals belong to it.
Chief Minister Uddhav Thackrey is new and is scared of taking action and depends a lot on the bureaucracy," the erstwhile ally of Thackrey-led Shiv Sena, Fadnavis, said while interacting with journalists through video conference.
"Lifetime opportunity for Maharashtra to attract industry moving out of China but the state government needs to be proactive," he said.
