Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday said his party would not shy away from "exposing" the BJP-led Maharashtra government if it fails to execute the loan waiver scheme properly.
Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday said that the Rs 34,022 crore farm loan waiver scheme would be a burden for the state but innovative schemes would tackle it.
Fadnavis made the remarks in reference to reports speculating mid-term polls in Maharashtra amid farmers' stir.
Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray warned BJP that his party would take a "big step" if the farmers' loan waiver is not implemented by next month.
