UDDHAV’S DEPENDENCE ON BABUS CREATES CRACKS IN COALITION

Rahil Nora Chopra : Nowadays, the Maha Vikas Aghadi coalition is in trouble due to the behaviour of Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and his extreme dependence on the bureaucrats. The Maharashtra Chief Minister is clearing files only after the chief secretary’s approval, resulting in the Congress leaders making noise about red tape. The most worried man at present is Sharad Pawar, the NCP chief, who has objected many times to the chief minister’s over-cautious bureaucratic approach. Pawar believes that the only way to revive the economy is to lift the lockdown, while Thackeray favours the bureaucrats’ plea for a more gradual withdrawal of lockdown. At the same time, CM Thackeray has showed his inability to engage the Mumbai industry which should have played a major role in organising relief and healthcare. At the time of the cyclone that was supposed to strike Mumbai but passed it by, CM Thackeray did not consult his allies and went alone on aerial survey of Raigad district, while 79-year-old Shared Pawar, a cancer survivor, made a road trip to survey the devastated region. According to political observers, the government may fall due to internal differences in the Maha Vikas Aghadi coalition.
