"The BJP-governments at the Centre and in the state are the biggest crisis. The has undertaken the yatra to tackle the crisis. And that fight will not stop till the governments are dislodged," a statement quoted Chavan as saying at a rally in

"No mentionable work has been carried out by these governments in the last four-and-a-half years and the people of the country are being deceived by them," Chavan said.

The number of suicide by farmers is growing due to the "anti-farmer policies" of the government, he alleged.

"Over 17,000 farmers in progressive have committed suicide in the last four-and-a-half years of the BJP-Sena rule," the said.

Calling BJP and as two sides of the same coin, he said they have betrayed the people through false assurances.

"Modi's 'Beti bachao, beti padhao' programme is a mockery as atrocities against women continue unabated across the country while the government remains a mute spectator," he said.

He also hit out at the BJP for allegedly trying to claim credit for the passage of a bill proposing 16 per cent reservation to Marathas in jobs and education.
