On Devendra Fadnavis “I still feel I’m CM” statement, MVA says stop daydreaming
Bharatiya Janata Party’s Leader of Opposition Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday said that he still feels that he is the Chief Minister of Maharashtra owing to the immense love and affection showered on him by the people of the state.
Going into splits, the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) leaders slammed him for continuing to ‘day-dream and not willing to accept the stark reality that the BJP was voted out of office two years ago; and Fadnavis’ claims even attracted sly sniggers from sections of his own party.
The Shiv Sena-Nationalist Congress Party-Congress leaders even advised the BJP to ensure prompt medical attention and get Fadnavis treated for shock, hallucinations, trauma, and mental problems before it’s too late.
A day after his statement, the Bharatiya Janata Party claimed that his remarks were ‘misinterpreted‘.
Talking to media persons, BJP State President Chandrakant Patil straightened the record by claiming that “as always, Fadnavis’ statement was misconstrued.”
“What Fadnavis actually meant was that wherever he goes as the Leader of Opposition, the people have the same expectations from him as when he was the CM,” Patil said.
He said, “Fadnavis is constantly on the move, visiting people in flood-hit areas, or rain-ravaged districts, the farmers and others who crowd around him and seek his help.”
To a pointed query whether it was possible that Fadnavis could return as the CM, Patil shot back: “How can I say, I am not an astrologer!”
“The people of the state have never made me feel that I am not the CM. I still feel that I am the CM. I have not been sitting at home. I have been working very hard and touring all over the state for the past two years. But the people’s love and respect have not waned,” Fadnavis asserted.
