Senior Nationalist Congress Party leader Ajit Pawar on Friday accused the Eknath Shinde government in Maharashtra of indulging in massive corruption, including fixing rates for the transfer of officials.
The personal assistants of several ministers had been raided (for corruption), the Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly alleged.
Speaking to reporters here, he also said governance was getting hampered in the state and people were distressed as Shinde's council of ministers had a strength of 20 against the stipulated 43, which meant each minister was handling too much work.
"All ministers have several portfolios. They are guardian ministers of several districts. They may claim they are capable of handling all this but it is hampering administration in the state," Pawar said.
"Farmers are not getting remunerative prices for their produce," he said.
