Fadnavis, who was speaking at 'Meet The Press' programme organised by Nagpur Press Club during his maiden visit to Nagpur after taking oath as Dy CM, said the Maharashtra cabinet expansion will be done very shortly.
"We both CM Eknath Shinde and I will discuss the allocation of cabinet portfolios,"Fadnavis said.
To a querry, he responded that he took proposal of Eknath Shinde as Chief Minister to Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) high command and had decided to extend the support to Shiv Sena led government from outside.
However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President JP Nadda emphasised that Government can’t process in an extra constitutional way and and thus, he was sworn in as Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra,” said Fadnavis.
"Despite the landslide victory in previous election, people of Maharashtra were robbed of their mandate. I’m not fond of power. I was just unstable due to the roadblocks created by unnatural alliance of MVA Government in the growth of Maharashtra,” said Fadnavis.
