Meanwhile, soon after Thackeray’s visit, the BJP Opposition Leader and former chief minister Devendra Fadnavis criticised the CM and said that people affected due to Nisarga cyclone last year are yet to receive financial assistance. This government is making hollow promises instead of taking firm steps.

He also lashed out at the MVA government for not taking preventive measures despite a warning of the cyclone.

Fadnavis also pointed out that his tour was of merely three hours. He also said that the state government must now monitor the damage assessment underway to ensure it is comprehensive.

Cyclone Tauktae caused damage to horticulture, houses and government buildings and also claimed 20 lives.
