Nanded shocker for BJP, Fadnavis
Beginning of BJP’s downward journey, says Chavan
ments have only raised taxes and cut funds for welfare schemes and subsidies that resulted in this anger and defeat of the BJP,” he said.
Chavan confessed that the party had not expected such a landslide win. “This mandate is historic. Opposition does not have enough numbers to get even the Leader of Opposition post in corporation,” said Chavan.
Chavan also pointed out how BJP had neglected its own activists and leaders in ticket distribution. “CM Fadnavis tried to make this campaign a high voltage one. But they neglected their own local BJPRSS leaders. CM gave the BJP’s campaign responsibility to Shiv Sena MLA Prataprao Chikalikar and a retired bureaucrat and the decision backfired.
