'Shiv Sena vs others this election': Neelam Gorhe

NASHIK: Shiv Sena MLA from Pune Neelam Gorhe, who was in the city on Sunday, said this time the assembly election would be a fight between her party and others.

Addressing mediapersons at the Sena's city headquarters, she added that Uddhav Thackeray did not take a dig at BJP leaders during election campaigns but leader of opposition in the assembly Eknath Khadse hurt the Shiv Sainiks' sentiments.

The MLA added that every party had a manifesto but implementing it is most important. "We also have a water policy. Even a decade after the Madhavrao Chitale Committee presented its report, the government has not done anything. The report had first mentioned water for industry and then for farming, drinking etc. We had to struggle a lot to change the sequence," she said.

Speaking about Godavari river pollution she said the Kumbh Mela would be held next year and the problems need to be resolved immediately. "Last time, Nanded got the funds late and so did Pandharpur. As a result, the infrastructure works got completed after the pilgrimage was over. We don't want the same to happen in Nashik," Gore added.

Taking a dig at the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), she spoke about the inconvenience people living near the flyover faced. "The Vision Document by Uddhav Thackeray speaks about education, health, tourism, industries and infrastructure related to it, women's empowerment, tribal issues etc. He wants to complete all the pending work from 1995-99 (when the party was in power) We want to go beyond corruption and scams," the MLA said.

She said the Sena had helped the BJP but never made objectionable statements about the leader of opposition in the assembly. "But Khadse has hurt the feelings of Shiv Sainiks in North Maharashtra. But we feel that because we don't have anyone to attack us from close quarters, the fight for the polls becomes easier."

About the likelihood of an alliance, she said, "There are five parties in the poll fray and in multi-pronged fights, any two parties always come together When the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena was born in 2005, people began thinking who will support it rather than who will win."
