Shift Nanar refinery to Gujarat, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray dares BJP

CM of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis and Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray

Speaking to reporters in Mumbai, Fadnavis dismissed Desai's announcement.

Meanwhile, reacting to Desai's remark over the land acquisition notification Chief Minister (CM) Devendra Fadnavis said, "The decision on the refinery project is to be taken by the high-powered committee". "No such proposal [to cancel the notification] has come before the committee", Fadnavis said, making it clear that Desai had not consulted him before making such a significant announcement.

The Nanar project is a joint venture between a consortium of three Indian oil companies and oil giant Saudi Ramco.

"The government is trying to acquire land from local residents under the old MIDC Act by promulgating an ordinance", he alleged. He said: "When state industries minister Subhash Desai has said there will be no land acquisition for the project, the topic of whether Nanar will stay or go is irrelevant". Thackeray will address public rally at Sagawe in Rajapur tehsil of Ratnagiri district on Monday.

The episode is akin to the impasse on Enron Power Project, which faced similar opposition when proposed by the then Congress government.

"Those affected by the project would get compensation as per the rules".

Dharmendra Pradhan, union petroleum and natural gas minister, at the time of signing the MoU, had said the project would bring huge benefits to the Konkan region and create a large number of jobs. "They lack the courage to even speak against the Central Government", Raj Thackeray, MNS chief. "What is agitating is that Delhi does not give any importance to the word of the person sitting as CM in my Maharashtra", the Sena chief said. It was proposed at Dabhol, also in Ratnagiri district. "What happened to Gujarat, we will not let that happen to Nanar (Konkan)".

At the event, locals demanded that the Sena leaders clarify the party's stand on the project, pointing out that on the one hand, the ministry, under Sena's minister Desai, had issued a notification to acquire land in May 2017, while on the other hand, the party said it was opposed to the project.

Desai, a Shiv Sena leader, had made the announcement at a rally in Nanar in the presence of party President Uddhav Thackeray. "A BJP MLA from Nagpur has written to the government saying that the project should be set up in Nagpur, so take it there", he said. "Dares BJP to conduct rally of those supporting the project". "If the state government insists on going ahead with the project, it could even form the basis for the Shiv Sena to break away from the current BJP-led government in the future".
