Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has cleared Rs 20 crore for conservation of the Raigad Fort as he promised concrete assistance for farmers.
He chaired the first meeting of his cabinet at Sahyadri Guest House in south Mumbai.
He said the first decision of the cabinet was to approve a sum of Rs 20 crore for conserving the Raigad Fort, which was the capital of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in the 17th century.
At a presser immediately after taking over as CM Thackeray said he has directed the chief secretary to review all existing government schemes for farmers.
“We can paint a better picture if we know the reality. We have sought inputs. Farmers have not got anything, but only assurances. We want to provide concrete help to farmers,” he said after the meeting.
