Maharashtra: BJP counters Raj Thackeray’s digital ‘Harisal’ lies with videos
Upset with MNS president Raj Thackeray rubbishing the government’s claims of Harisal village in Amravati being the first digital village, the BJP on Tuesday released a video to counter Thackeray’s claims. Senior BJP leader Vinod Tawde told mediapersons that Thackeray was lying.
Tawde alleged that the Harisal village videos being circulated by MNS workers were taken in October 2018. “Students in Harisal are taught how to use tablets. They are enjoying the education being imparted in a digital way,” he said. The minister said that MNS leader claimed that Harisal villagers do not have ATM cards. “The Harisal village has a population of 1,479. The bank has issued 4,380 ATM cards,”Tawde said.
