As flooding and wall collapse incidents, triggered by heavy rains, claimed at least 12 lives in Pune, the NCP on Thursday alleged that Maharashtra’s disaster management cell was in a “deep slumber”. NCP chief spokesperson Nawab Malik also accused Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis of being “imbued only with polls and nothing else”, as he observed that the latter was in New Delhi to attend a poll-related meetings of BJP leaders.

“The chief minister is so imbued with the BJP and polls that he sees nothing else…these people are not concerned about the crisis people are faced with. They are only worried about retaining power,” Malik said.

The disaster management cell of the state is in a deep slumber, he added. Senior NCP leader Ajit Pawar urged the people to maintain caution given the situation and asked the chief minister to restore normalcy in parts of the district, where roads caved in and bridges got washed away.
