Mumbai, Jun 20 (PTI) Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today lauded
RPI leader Ramdas Athawale for supporting the Shiv Sena-BJP alliance
in Maharashtra. "Modi congratulated me and told me that it was a good
thing I was siding with them (saffron combine)," Athawale, who met the
Gujarat Chief Minister at Gandhinagar today, told PTI over phone. "He
said earlier RPI was part of UPA and was opposed to Sena-BJP and that
although late, it is better that we are with the Sena-BJP combine,"
Athawale said. Athawale said he told Modi about the difficulties faced
by the around 25 lakh people of Maharashtrian origin in Gujarat,
including Dalits, in procuring domicile certificate. The people hail
from places like Jalgaon, Dhule, Nandurbar and parts of Vidarbha, he
said. "The Gujarat Chief Minister assured me that he would look into
the matter," he said. "Modi told us that the Gujarat government has
improved irrigation and agriculture. It has also started a "108
ambulance" scheme wherein an ambulance reaches rural areas within 10
to 15 minutes, free of charge," the RPI leader said, adding he would
take up the matter with Maharashtra Chief Minister for starting such a
service in the state.
