Ramdas Kadam assures no ban on fire crackers in state

Taking on the judiciary over recent verdicts on the ban of firecrackers, Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray angrily remarked, “Now only verdicts calling for tearing up almanac, stopping all hypocrisy of festivals remain to be issued. Issue those all if need be. As it is our festivals have lost their sheen. There is excesses of silence. One day resentment will explode”. Taking the cue from his party boss, Sena's Minister for Environment, Ramdas Kadam in a sarcastic tenor aimed at his party's senior Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) president Raj Thackeray remarked “rest assured, there will be no ban on firecrackers in Maharashtra.

Speaking to newspersons yesterday, on the sidelines of reviewing Metro 3 project at Azad Maidan, he warned that there has been excesses over silence and one day the brewing public resentment will explode. All eyes are now on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led governments both at the state and centre take on the Supreme Court and Bombay High Court verdicts on the firecrackers issue.

Shiv Sena's Minister for Environment remarked “Sanjay Raut and Raj Thackeray should not worry about it (the government stand). Balasaheb (late Sena chief Balasaheb Thackeray) has given us teachings of Hindutva. Please do not spread confusion amongst people. There will be no ban on firecrackers in Maharashtra. We are Hindutvawadi (pro-Hindutva). There will be no restrictions imposed on celebrating Hindu festivals and this sin, the Sena and myself will never do it. Hence there will be no decision taken on firecracker ban”.

It may be recalled that the Minister for Environment, had administered an oath to school children for celebrating a pollution free Diwali on October 10. The function was also attended by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. Kadam had then stated that the government will strive to celebrate a pollution free Diwali in the state. Following the court verdicts, both Raut and the MNS chief had severely criticised the verdict.

Commenting upon the protest over the Metro 3 carshed coming up inside Aarey Milk Colony, Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray opined that it cannot be that the permission of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will not be required for the Metro carshed. “The BMC and the state government need to work hand in hand, only then development is possible. If the BMC's approval is required in other cases then the BMC's permission should be mandatory in this case also. We will not approve of any proposal that brings secondary status to BMC officers. Actually, the Urban Development department sent the proposal for granting special status to the Metro project, only for information. Even if it is approved, the Metro project will anyway get a special status”.

The Sena president further remarked that he himself is not satisfied with the work going on the Metro 3 carshed in Aarey Milk Colony. Thackeray stated that he will soon tour the area, inspect the work and then express his views. He added “if there is damage to the environment then Sena's opposition will remain. The ongoing works are causing tremors and shaking the buildings. However, the Metro 3 officers are taking adequate precautions.”
