Will provide transparent govt in Maharashtra: Devendra Fadnavis

Mumbai: Maharashtra BJP president Devendra G Fadnavis on Sunday promised that the BJP will provide a transparent government in the state.

As the BJP emerged as the single largest party in Maharashtra, Fadnavis said that the party will form the government in the state.

“We will definitely form the government. We will definitely have a BJP chief minister,” he said, adding the parliamentary board will decide on the CM as well as post-poll alliances if needed.

“The people have given mandate to the BJP. We are winning in all parts of the state and have emerged as the single largest party,” he said further.

Fadnavis is among the frontrunners to lead the BJP's first government in Maharashtra.

Earlier this morning, Fadnavis had said that his party will capture power in the state for the first time.

He said the party's parliamentary board will meet later in the evening to analyse the poll results and other issues.

"There is no doubt in my mind that the BJP will form the next government in Maharashtra. We are 100 percent certain of getting a majority," Fadnavis had earlier told a news agency in an interview.

When asked during the interview why has the BJP has not projected anyone for the post of chief minister, the 44-year-old Brahmin from Nagpur said, "We concluded that Maharashtra wants to go with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, his agenda of development and progress. So, the government will be fully supportive of this."

When asked if the BJP wins the election, will it prefer the state's first woman OBC chief minister (Pankaja Munde) or second Brahmin chief minister (Fadnavis), he said, "Maharashtra has moved far ahead of any caste-religion considerations. A majority of voters are in the 25-year age group. They have dreams and aspirations, a desire for development, progress, employment."
