As poll-bound Maharashtra prepares for elections, support has been pouring in from fellow BJP leaders for Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. The latest instance comes from Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant. Sawant on Wednesday said that Devendra Fadnavis will retain the position as the state Chief Minister. Sawant said that the BJP will win with a thumping majority and Devendra Fadnavis will become Chief Minister once again.
Talking to the media, Sawant said:
"There is no doubt that Devendra Fadanavis would once again become the Chief Minister of Maharashtra."
The Goa CM had addressed a gathering in Mumbai and also toured several districts in Maharashtra like Kolhapur, Satara and Sangli during his campaign last week.
