MUMBAI: A four-year-old video shared by BJP on social media of deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis saying he will return to helm the state has rocked the political and bureaucratic circles.”I will return for building a new Maharashtra,” the state BJP posted on Friday on X, along with the video. The post was deleted a few hours later after BJP leadership took objection over the content on the grounds that such a post would create instability in the three-party Mahayuti government, which is already on a shaky wicket owing to intra-alliance disputes.The video has been posted at a juncture when state assembly speaker Rahul Narwekar is hearing a petition by Shiv Sena (UBT) MLA Sunil Prabhu against CM Eknath Shinde and a section of Shiv Sena legislators. Defending the content of the Fadnavis video, state BJP spokesperson Keshav Upadhye said it is part of the Mahajanadesh Yatra and in the past too, it has been circulated on umpteen occasions. The video gives new energy to the younger generation of the party, he added.
