Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Friday demanded a package for drought-hit Maharashtra, similar to the Rs 1.25 lakh crore package promised to Bihar, and criticised the Devendra Fadnavis-led Maharashtra Government for going ahead with a tax hike of Rs 1600 crore.

“We welcome Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision of giving 1.25 lakh crore package to the economically weaker state of Bihar. But, a similar package should be given to drought-hit Maharashtra by the central government,” Raut told ANI here.

Reacting to an editorial in the Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece ‘Saamana’, Raut said: It’s a truth what is written in ‘Saamana’. As far as the financial crisis in Maharashtra is concerned, there is a sudden tax hike of Rs 1600 crore. There is a drought in the Vidarbha region and lakhs of farmers are running to Mumbai. The government in order to make up for losses in its exchequer, has imposed a burden of Rs.1600 crore as tax on the people.”
