Actor Aamir Khan, who was as of late supplanted as the ambassador of the “Incredible India” campaign, is prone to be the envoy for a key project of the Maharashtra government.
Aamir Khan to be the ambassador for Maharashtra’s ‘Jalyukta Shivar’
He is prone to be the minister of “drought – free Maharashtra” and will promote a flagship irrigation system in villages, sources say.
Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis will announce at a decision on Wednesday with Khan present. More than 1,000 farmers have committed suicide in the most recent three months, the state government’s oath in the Bombay high court.
The project, “Jalyukt Shivar Abhiyan”, goes for making 25,000 towns in the state dry spell free in five years. State government officials say with more than 3200 farmers died in the last year, it is imperative to promote the project in a big way.
“It will most likely be one of the greatest partnership of such a kind in the nation. He will work with us through an organized project to help Jal Yukt Shivar. He will give us his time, center and help in execution,” said a bureaucrat.
In January, the BJP government suspended Aamir Khan as the brand ambassador or its Incredible India campaign after 10 years, saying the agreement with McCann, the advertising company that hired Khan, had run out.
In any case, now, another stretch between the performer and the BJP-led government might be starting, albeit restricted to Maharashtra.
