Anil Galgali has expressed that a huge amount has been disbursed by the government, and non availability of district and village wise details is a major lapse on part of the govt. Due to the lapse it has become impossible to verify that actual beneficiaries of the villages have been benefitted by the loan waiver disbursement? The govt has itself closed the doors for the verification process stated Anil Galgali in a letter addressed to CM Devendra Fadnavis, Galgali in the letter has further demanded that, the CM should order the preparation of list of beneficiaries district and village wise to the govt authorities.
