devendra_fadnavis Nagpur Maharashtra CMNagpur: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday extended birthday greetings to Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.

“Wishing the young & industrious CM of Maharashtra, @Dev_Fadnavis on his birthday. May he always remain healthy & lead a long life,” Prime Minister Modi said on twitter.


Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis has appealed against putting any banner or flex or advertisement for his birthday today on July 22. He has requested to his well-wishers to donate money for Jalyukta Shivaar Abhiyaan or the chief minister’s fund instead.

Fadnavis issued a press release calling on his well-wishers not to celebrate his birthday, saying he himself never celebrates it. In the press release, he has said that donations to district collectors concerned for the Jalyukta Shivaar Abhiyaan or the chief minister’s fund would be welcome as that will help the government take steps to “get rid of drought forever”.
