The grand event held at Vashi was to mark the official entry of Ganesh Naik in the BJP party. But make no mistake about the man of the moment for hands down it wasn’t Ganesh Naik. But Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis who with his political acumen and political & people’s intelligence has taken over Navi Mumbai. He did it slowly but very steadily by changing the minds of the other rung of leaders in Navi Mumbai : from MLA Manda Mhatre, Mathadi leader Narendra Patil and Shiv Sena leader Vijay Chougule. As all became Fadnavis confidantes, he then trained his guns on the Naiks. It’s a confession that the Chief Minister made on stage as Ganesh Naik entered the BJP.
And looks like the Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had his way as he stole Ganesh Naik right from under NCP Supremo Sharad Pawar’s nose. He didn’t stop at that, he taunted Sharad Pawar and those leaders that have been questioning the ethical grounds of the mega entry by BJP.
Devendra Fadnavis went on to asserted that people weren’t coming to them for power but because they had faith in PM Modi’s leadership.
Sharing his future course of action for Navi Mumbai, the Chief Minister said that while BJP MLA Manda Mhatre and former MLA Sandeeep Naik had been taking up issues of Navi Mumbai and the state was addressing them, now under Ganesh Naik they would make sure no issues are left unattended.
The BJP has hopes that Ganesh Naik will make the party strong in the Thane region and Ganesh Naik will take on the might of Shiv Sena in the region under Thane Guardian Minister Eknath Shinde. In an indirect reference, the Chief Minister voiced confidence that the BJP will get a boost in the region with Ganesh Naik’s induction.
In his first term as Chief Minister, Devendra Fadnavis was handpicked by PM Modi and the then party chief Amit Shah in 2014 and within 5 years, leaders from the saffron alliance and even Congress and NCP now openly acknowledge the credibility and accomplishments of Devendra Fadnavis efficient and clean leadership. In fact, within BJP, CM Devendra Fadnavis is seen as the first Chief Minister who spends as much time in municipal corporation level of politics as he does on state, to make BJP strong from root up. #ZebaWarsia – NMTV News.
