CM, Chavan tour to garner support for municipal council polls

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and state president canvassed in different districts for their candidates as campaign for the first phase of Municipal Council and Nagar polls culminated today.

Addressing rallies in different places in yesterday, Chief Minister Fadnavis exhorted people to support and assured them of all round development of cities.



"There is a government at the Centre and in the state. Support us in the municipal councils as well. I take the responsibility for development of the cities," he said, assuring housing and education for all.

He said the previous government could not implement the open defecation-free (ODF) programme in the country.

"In the last two years, 100 cities have been declared ODF. We have also given the people right to services act," he said.

Urging people to support demonetisation, the CM asked them to become Modi's "soldiers" in the struggle of economic independence.

Meanwhile, Congress' Chavan took potshots at former ally NCP last night while addressing a rally in Pusad district of Vidarbha, considered a stronghold of the Sharad Pawar-led party.

"Even though we wanted to be the no. 1 party in the state, we ruled the state for 15 years with our ally (NCP) to prevent the rise of communal forces. As chief minister from Congress, we did our best to ensure all round development of the state. Unfortunately, the development did not reach Pusad," he said while addressing the rally.

"If you want to see what is development, you should come to Nanded. It was possible because people supported late Shankarrao Chavan and his vision of development and the support continues till today for Congress," said Chavan, the former chief minister.
