However, absences of former MLA Narendra Mehta at the event raised many eyebrows. Mehta’s closeness with former CM is well-known.
Born on July 22, 1970, Devendra Fadnavis became first BJP Chief Minister of Maharashtra. He is second youngest CM of Maharashtra at the age of 44 years after NCP supremo Sharad Pawar. Feather in his wings, he is the second Chief Minister to have completed his full tenure after Vasantrao Naik. In November 2019, Fadnavis became Chief Minister of Maharashtra just for 80 hours, the shortest.
Former CM’s visits
During the tenure as the Chief Minister, he has special affection towards twin city. However, he had visited Pandit Bhimsen Joshi COVID Hospital in Bhayandar this month. The hospital also known as Tembha Hospital is dedicated COVID hospital in Mira-Bhayandar. During his visit, Fadnavis had appealed the state government that the MBMC is not financially capable to bear all the expenses in fighting with coronavirus. Although the state government has provided Rs 15 crore to MBMC, that is not sufficient.
