Nagpur: Union minister Nitin Gadkari has filed his nomination for the Nagpur Lok Sabha seat on Monday claiming he will win the poll with a bigger margin.
The constituency goes to polls on April 11.
Gadkari had defeated Vilas Muttemwar (Congress) in the 2014 elections by a margin of 2.84 lakh votes.
The BJP veteran was accompanied by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Energy Minister Chandrashekar Bawankule, family members and a large number of party workers, while filing his nomination.
Gadkari will register a “historic win” from Nagpur, Fadnavis said and added that he will create a record of sorts in Maharashtra.
The chief minister said the BJP-Shiv Sena combine would win 45 of the 48 Lok Sabha seats in the state.
