Confident that new government will be formed soon in Maharashtra: Fadnavis


New Delhi : Amid the recent power struggle with alliance partners Shiv Sena in Maharashtra, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Monday expressed confidence that the state will be getting a new government soon.

Speaking to media persons, Fadnavis said, “I don’t want to comment on anything anyone is saying on new government formation. All I want to say is that Maharashtra needs a new government as soon as possible and it will be formed soon, I am confident.”
