Fadnavis landed in London on June 29 and visited the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, where she performed a special puja and prayed for the stability and prosperity of Maharashtra.
Amruta’s visit to the UK coincided with the culmination of political crisis in Maharashtra wherein Shiv Sena rebel Eknath Shinde became the chief minister and her husband Devendra as his deputy, albeit unwillingly.
Devendra Fadnavis, who had served as CM from 2014 to 2019, initially announced at a press conference that he won’t be a part of the new state government but will extend full support to Shinde and his cabinet. BJP’s central leadership, however, directed him to take up the role of deputy CM.
