Opposition apprehensive about the formation of cooperative ministry, questions raised
At the same time, the opposition is apprehensive about the newly formed cooperative ministry. NCP leader Sharad Pawar said the new ministry at the Center will not make any difference but it cannot interfere in the cooperative sector of the states, while senior Congress leader Ramesh Chennithala called for a united struggle with secular parties against the formation of a new ministry in the government. appealed to.
In Ahmedabad on the first day of his three-day visit to Gujarat, Shah said Modi was probably the first leader to devised a mechanism to ensure that development work continues even after he quits as chief minister. During this long experience in politics, I have seen three types of leaders. There are some leaders who let things happen at their own pace and only go for cutting the lace. There are also some leaders who work hard to ensure maximum development during their tenure.
But there are some who make such a system that development continues even after their departure and Narendra Bhai is probably the first leader to do so. He said that PM Modi has an agenda of development. Shah has also been given the charge of the newly formed Ministry of Cooperation. The new ministry will provide a separate administrative, legal and policy framework to strengthen the cooperative movement in the country. This will help the cooperatives to reach the grassroots level.
While targeting the Modi government, NCP chief Sharad Pawar said that the Center has no right to interfere in the laws approved by the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly. He said that there is a discussion that the formation of a new cooperative ministry of the central government will put obstacles in the way of the cooperative movement in Maharashtra, but such discussions are useless because according to the constitution, the responsibility of making cooperative laws in the state rests with the state government.
On this basis, laws related to the cooperative department have been made in the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly. He said that the idea of the Ministry of Cooperation is not new but the central government cannot interfere in the cooperative sector of the states. He said that as per the constitution, cooperative institutions registered in a state are under the control of the states.
The Ministry of Co-operatives constituted by the Central Government stands for Multi-State Co-operative Institutions. Co-operative institutions registered in more than one state cannot be controlled by one state, it can be controlled by the center only. He said such an idea was presented to him even when he was a minister at the Centre.
Criticizing the Center for setting up the cooperative ministry, senior Congress leader Ramesh Chennithala said the Modi government’s move was unconstitutional and communal. Through this, the government wants to control cooperatives having a strong presence in states like Kerala, Karnataka, Maharashtra.
He appealed to all secular parties to unite to fight against this move of the Centre. He also said that the delegation of opposition parties should meet the President to intervene on the issue. Leader of Opposition in Kerala Legislative Assembly Chennithala said the opposition parties should also explore legal options on the issue as the issue of cooperative society is a state subject.
