There is not an iota of doubt behind the fact that Devendra Fadanavis is currently the most popular public figure of Maharashtra. His popularity rating has crossed even that of Late Bala Saheb Thackeray.
It is because of this fact that the national leadership of the BJP had to thwart the indirect pressure of powerful Nitin Gadakari to let Devendra Fadanavis become the CM of Maharashtra. Even Uddhav Thackeray understood the wider public mood and decided to support the BJP government led by none other than Devendra Fadanavis.
It must be mentioned here that the CM Devendra Fadanavis becomes the most popular politician of Maharashtra only after the sad and unfortunate demise of Gopinath Munde.
A different politician
Devendra Fadnavis isn't like everyday politician. He is a well-read person. His speeches in the Assembly were waited by intelligentsia. It gives immense pleasure to see a politician like him in these times of complete cynicism. He is a scholar on Budget and Accounting.
