Pune, Feb 9 : Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Saturday claimed that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and it's alliance parties will win 43 seats, including the seat of Baramati, in the the state in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Addressing a gathering of booth representatives here in the city, the Chief Minister said there was no doubt that Baramati Lok Sabha constituency was stronghold of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) President Sharad Pawar but it would come into the fold of BJP this time as people of Baramati were fed up of 'Pawar power'.
Mr Fadnavis said it would be a big historical mistake if Congress came to power in Maharashtra again.
He said,'In the last Lok Sabha elections, BJP and it's allies had won 42 seats but this year we are going to win 43 seats as one would be Baramati constituency.'
The Chief Minister said his party would contest all the 48 seats in Maharashtra and hoped that people would recognise work done by his government which included introduction of various schemes for poor and resolving of farmers' issues.
Mr Fadnavis cautioned people against making historical mistake as it could ruin their life and whole development work of the state. (UNI)
