‘Shinde became CM only after my suggestion’, Devendra Fadnavis told why Eknath was made CM of Maharashtra?



After the upheaval in Maharashtra politics, one question that was on everyone’s mind was why Devendra Fadnavis was not made the CM. Now Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis himself has revealed why Eknath Shinde was made the Chief Minister of Maharashtra. Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis made a big disclosure saying that it was he who suggested the name of Eknath Shinde for the post of Chief Minister.

Devendra Fadnavis at the India Today Conclave Mumbai on Saturday said, “I had suggested the name of Eknath Shinde for the Chief Minister of Maharashtra to the central leadership of BJP. And my decision was absolutely right. If I didn’t do this, the message would have gone to the public that we have used them to grab power. We didn’t want that.”

Devendra Fadnavis said, “One thing I can say for sure is that the decision to make Eknath Shinde the Chief Minister was taken after consultation and discussion with me and can actually say on National Television that this is my proposal. I said that he (Eknath Shinde) should be made the chief minister. The chief minister and our leaders approved the proposal. So of course, it was not surprising to me at all.
