Nawab Malik alleged that Devendra Fadnavis had no sympathy for for the martyrs.

NCP yesterday slammed Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis for not paying homage to the martyrs of 26/11 terror attacks by visiting the memorial built for them.

This is the first time Fadnavis has come under attack from NCP which has supported his minority government.

NCP spokesman Nawab Malik said for the last six years since the attacks Fadnavis had taken the lead in targeting the then state government over the issue and had derived political mileage.

“But after coming to power, he has conveniently forgotten the martyrs and stayed away from paying homage at the memorial in Mumbai. The excuse being given is he is with the President of India who is on tour of the state. But previous Chief Ministers, on such occasions, would send ministers in charge of protocol to the President’s function,” Malik said.

Malik alleged that Fadnavis had no sympathy for for the martyrs.

Meanwhile, state unit NCP president Sunil Tatkare visited the memorial of 26/11 martyrs here and paid homage.

Similarly, the state Congress also organised a function to mark the sixth anniversary of the terror attacks and observed a two-minute silence as a mark of respect for the martyrs.
