Fadnavis to launch Maha Janadesh Yatra on 1 August
The BJP-Shiv Sena have decided to fight the assembly polls in alliance though the exact number of seats each party would contest has not been announced yet
The Maha Janadesh Yatra is seen as the BJP’s bid to not only retain power in Maharashtra but also ensure Fadnavis returns as the chief minister
Mumbai: A total of 4384 kilometers, 32 districts, nearly 150 assembly constituencies, and 23 days. That is what Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, who is also the face of the Bharatiya Janata Party campaign in the forthcoming assembly elections, will cover during his Maha Janadesh Yatra across the state from August 1 to 31. Giving details of the yatra at a press conference here on Wednesday, newly appointed state BJP president and revenue minister Chandrakant Patil said Fadnavis would showcase the achievements of the BJP-Shiv Sena government since October 2014 and seek another mandate for the saffron combine. Maharashtra assembly polls are likely in October, though no official announcement has been made yet.
