Seeing whatever happened in Maharashtra politics from June 10 to June 29, 2022 or is going to happen in the next two or three days, there is no hesitation in saying that the leader of the opposition and former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis is the real person of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s land. Chanakya is there and undoubtedly the era of Maratha satrap Sharad Pawar is almost over.
Clearly, it should be accepted and separated from active politics by accepting Pawar sahib, as it has also been proved that his attempt to conduct power in the state under the guise of making Balasaheb Thackeray’s ineligible successor Uddhav Thackeray as the chief minister ultimately failed.
immersion time of pawar power
Sharad Pawar’s image is still that of the 1978 politician, who cheated Chief Minister Vansatdada Patil and grabbed the power of the state by breaking his MLAs. Even today Pawar has not been able to come out of that manipulative image. But on the other hand, the image of Fadnavis remained that of a gentleman leader during the current political whirlwind.
Eknath got Shinde to revolt, but called it an internal matter of Shiv Sena. Fadnavis has given a befitting reply to both Pawar and Uddhav in his style by getting Shiv Sena MLAs to revolt. Due to the clever policy of the clever politician, the snake also died and the stick remained intact.
In a way, this will also be called a mistake-correction of 2019.
By the way, hashtags on social media since Sunday i re yein Meaning I am coming again, has started trending. This was the popular slogan of Fadnavis in the year 2019, which he put up during his Mandate Yatra. At that time he had become a victim of overconfident and was trapped in Uddhav Thackeray’s maze, that is why in November 2019, when Sharad Pawar called Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray, breaking the tradition of keeping Bal Thackeray away from the politics of the Thackeray family elections. When he was sworn in as the Chief Minister of the state, Fadnavis’ slogan Me again Yein was being ridiculed.
The return of the active Fadnavis and the political lessons
It can be said that after November 2019, Devendra Fadnavis felt that trusting the Thackeray family and the Pawar family were the two blunders of his political life. First, it was his political mistake to forge an alliance with Shiv Sena despite the BJP being in a win-win position before the elections in 2019 and second, relying on Ajit Pawar after the election results and taking oath as the chief minister with him at the Raj Bhavan early in the morning.
Fadnavis became more politically mature after becoming the Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly. He realized keenly who was his real companion and who was with him with a dagger in his hand.
As opposition leader Devendra Fadnavis never sat at home. Even when Uddhav Thackeray, who reluctantly accepted the chief minister’s post due to the Corona pandemic, could not come out of Matashree, Fadnavis continued to tour the state and share the misery of the people.
In many places including the disaster like Konkan, Fadnavis or his people used to reach before the government. Due to this the trust of the people of the state in Fadnavis kept increasing. The people of the state also began to believe that in the 2019 elections, whom they had voted for the alliance to make them the Chief Minister, they could not get power due to a political conspiracy, but that leader is not cut off from them.
