After Maharashtra governor denied permission to use state plane, Shiv Sena has to say this

Mumbai: The Shiv Sena, which drew flak from opposition BJP in Maharashtra for not allowing Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari to use state plane, on Saturday gave a clarification on the controversy.

Sena, which in power in Maharashtra, asked as to why the governor sat in the plane when the government had not given its approval for it to fly.

Koshyari was scheduled to visit Dehradun on Thursday morning using the state government plane. However, when he reached Mumbai airport and boarded the plane, he was informed that permission for use of aircraft had not been received. He later took a commercial flight to Dehradun.

The state’s ruling party, in an editorial in mouthpiece 'Saamana’, said that it was a private tour of the governor and as per the law, not only the governor, but even the chief minister cannot use a state plane for such purposes. The Chief Minister's Office (CMO) has acted in accordance with law, it said.

“But Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis accused the state government of being egoistic. The country knows who is indulging in politics of ego. Despite the death of over 200 farmers during the ongoing protest on Delhi borders over the three farm laws, the government is not ready to withdraw them. Isn't that ego?” the Uddhav Thackeray-led party asked.
