Will accept CM's post if party asks: Maharashtra BJP president Chandrakant Patil
Maharashtra BJP president and number two in the Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis Cabinet, Chandrakant Patil on Friday stunned his party workers after he revealed that if the party offers him CM's post he will take it.
Patil, who is a close confidant of PM Narendra Modi and party president Amit Shah, was, however, quite categorical in his statement that he had never staked claim nor aspired for any post in his career. "I have successfully fulfilled responsibilities bestowed on me by the party. I got all posts strictly on the basis of my performance. So if the party gives me the opportunity to be CM why should I leave it. I will take it,'' he said.
