Former Chief Minister of Maharashtra and the current Leader of Opposition, Devendra Fadnavis, on Tuesday, October 12, declared that he felt that he was still the Chief Minister of Maharashtra.
He said the same while addressing citizens at a function in Mumbai.
“Because of the support of my leaders and my beloved citizens, I never for one single day felt that I was not the Chief Minister. I still feel like I’m the Chief Minister,” he said.
“At last it doesn’t matter who sits at which position. His work and dedication matter the most. From the last two years, I’m serving my people and they never made me feel that I’m not the Chief Minister,” he added.
His remarks raised eyebrows and the leaders from the Maha Vikas Aghadi-the ruling party in Maharashtra hit back with sharp criticism and said that he (Devendra) should stop ‘daydreaming.’
Cabinet Minister Nawab Malik, said, “He is still in shock and can’t digest the fact he lost in 2019 and Shri Uddhav Thackeray is the CM now.”
