NCP supremo Sharad Pawar has hit back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and posed a query. Pawar said that Prime Minister should not be telling how many new factories have come up, but also reveal how many have closed down due to the slowdown.

Addressing meetings of party workers ahead of Maharashtra assembly polls, the former Union minister also spoke about “Marathi manoos” getting elbowed out from the former textile district of Mumbai.

“There is an economic slowdown in the country. The economy will be in trouble if the slowdown persists. Investment dynamic has gone wrong,” Pawar said at a meeting in Nanded.

“Prime Minister @narendramodi tells new factories have come in the country. But instead of telling how many have come, he should declare how many factories have closed down,” Pawar tweeted later.

Lakhs of youngsters are jobless, he alleged. At a meeting in Hingoli, Pawar said of the 120 textile mills in Mumbai, the state’s capital, only ten are operating.

“Mumbai was once the biggest textile hub in the world. There were 120 textile mills where four lakh workers worked…now in place of these mills, 30-storey, 40-storey buildings have come up, where we don’t get to see my Marathi manoos (Marathi-speaker), that property is in the hands of other people,” he added.

About 16,000 farmers have committed suicide in Maharashtra alone, the former Union agriculture minister said, without specifying the period.
