Some Opposition legislators, on Wednesday, moved the breach of privilege notice against 28 ministers for not fulfilling the promises made in the Legislative Assembly and for not answering their questions.

A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislator from Nagpur, Devendra Fadnavis, served a notice to 25 ministers (the ministers may be the same but department they held would be different) for not replying to his questions even after the mandatory period of 60 days.

“I do not understand why I did not get answers to questions related to issues of public interest?” Fadnavis said in the House.

Senior legislator Sudhir Munganttiwar, who also heads the state BJP, accused revenue minister Balasaheb Thorat said, “The revenue minister assured me on March 30, 2011, that the kotwals (village clerks) would be given class four status. But no answer or action has been taken four months after the promise.”

BJP’s Sambhaji Pawar slammed environment minister Sanjay Deotale for not keeping his promise of punitive action against a sugar mill that polluted a river near Sangli by discharging hazardous chemicals in the water. Anil Kadam (Shiv Sena) moved a notice against food and civil supplies minister Anil Deshmukh.
