From Nagpur corporator to Maharashtra CM

Fadnavis Profile: RSS man who rose from Nagpur corporator to Maharashtra CM

MODI'S CHOICE: Fadnavis, the 44-year-old fourth term MLA, who worked for long under the shadows of stalwarts like Pramod Mahajan, Gopinath Munde and Nitin Gadkari, has deep roots in RSS and was handpicked by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party Chief Amit Shah over his seniors for his organisational skills after BJP's triumphant run in Lok Sabha and Assembly polls. The untimely death of Mahajan and Munde, the latter was tipped for chief ministership if BJP came to power in the state, and Gadkari's shift to the national stage, left a vacuum in state party leadership but opened a new vista for the young leader's march to Mantralaya, the seat of power in Maharashtra.
