Chandrakant Patil says party aims to achieve 'Congress-mukt' Maharashtra
Newly-appointed Maharashtra unit chief of BJP Chandrakant Patil on Wednesday said making the state "Congress-mukt" was his priority in the upcoming Assembly elections.
He was talking to reporters after his appointment as the state unit chief of BJP. Patil, considered number two in the Devendra Fadnavis-led cabinet, replaced Raosaheb Danve, who resigned as the state BJP chief after his induction into the Union cabinet.
"My priority is to achieve Congress-mukt Maharashtra in the Assembly elections," he said. He, however, admitted that defeating NCP leader Ajit Pawar in Baramati Assembly constituency would be like day-dreaming.
