Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that those, who helped the perpetrators of 1993 Mumbai blasts flee the country and take shelter in Pakistan, will be exposed soon.

Addressing an election rally at Kharghar in Navi Mumbai, Mr Modi said, people have been asking who helped these perpetrators to flee and what their relations were with the perpetrators - business, commercial or otherwise.  

Dawood Ibrahim, Tiger Memon and other key accused in the case fled to Pakistan soon after the serial blasts. Mr Modi also said, the culprits are panicking and are trying to divert attention by raising irrelevant topics but people will seek answers from them for their misdeeds.

Stating that Konkan region and its rich coast can play an important role in the state’s economic development, Mr Modi said his government is working towards strengthening the fisheries department and loans are now available for fishermen who wish to modernise their boats. He said fishermen while ensuring that

safety of sea resources and the coast, must now play an active role against inappropriate disposal of single-use plastic items along the coast.

Mr Modi said Maharashtra has been a major beneficiary of start-up programme and FDI in the last five years. He said infrastructure development has taken place with projects like Navi Mumbai Airport, trans harbour link road and expansion of metro network being implemented at a much faster rate. He said the housing and real estate sector has been made corruption-free so that the poorest of the poor can be provided with a home. The Prime Minister lauded the state BJP’s resolve to provide housing for all by 2022. He informed that about two lakh houses are being built in Panvel under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana.

NCP chief Sharad Pawar has alleged that farmers in Maharashtra are not getting Minimum Support Price for their produce. He was addressing an election rally in Beed district of Marathwada region yesterday.
