Speaking to the media on Friday, Fadnavis, who was accompanied by state BJP chief Raosaheb Danve Patil and others, said the GST bill not being passed had affected the country’s economy as its approval would have boosted the economy by Rs2 lakh crore annually and the state would benefit by Rs20,000 crore.

He alleged that the Congress was unable to digest its electoral defeat and charged that in case the GST bill was approved, the credit would go to the Narendra Modi led government, which the Congress did not want for “petty selfishness”.

Fadnavis, who described the disruptions by the Congress as premeditated, said they would reach out to the people with details of this behaviour of the Congress. Accordingly, the BJP will demonstrate against the Congress across the state on August 16.

BJP’s ally, the Shiv Sena, was firmly with the party, he noted. Fadnavis also criticised the NCP’s agitation led by its national president and former union agriculture minister Sharad Pawar as “pretentious” and questioned who was responsible for the state of affairs and for the sorry state of co-operative institutions in Osmanabad district.
