Nagpur: A grand felicitation was accorded to BJP national president Nitin Gadkari on his elevation as the party chief, here last night by a reception committee comprised of mostly his friends and partymen.
Speaking on the occasion, Gadkari reiterated that he would pursue the politics of development. "People come to me to seek tickets for ensuing elections, but hardly talk of
development of their own areas, city and state," he said.
Veteran activist Sumati Suklikar blessed Gadkari and his wife on the occasion. Noted builder Prabhakar Mundle, all past and present BJP legislators, corporators including city Mayor Archana Dehankar, former MP Banwarilal Purohit and party functionaries were present.
