The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) unit in Maharashtra is prepared for mid-term polls, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has said. With the recent success of BJP in Maharashtra local bodies’ polls, held recently, Fadnavis is confident that people of the state will support the saffron party despite various agitations in the state.
According to a report in Mint, Fadnavis told reporters, “Some people said (when the agitation was on) that they will bring the government down, they will withdraw support. I said we are ready for mid-term polls. If someone wants to impel us to go for mid-term polls, I am confident we will be able to form government again.”
Earlier, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut had suggested that his party, a BJP ally in the state government, would withdraw support if the loan waiver was not announced.
The Fadnavis government had agreed to the long-standing demand of farmers and announced a loan waiver for them last Sunday.
