MUMBAI: Leader of Opposition in the Maharashtra Assembly Devendra Fadnavis was on Sunday recited a poem promising a comeback after the state fiasco.
Addressing his critics and detractors, the three-day chief minister said:
“Mera paani utarta dekh, mere kinaare par ghar mat basaa lena. Mera paani utarta dekh, mere kinaare par ghar mat basaa lena. Mai samudra hoon, laut kar wapas aonga,” ((Thinking the tide has ebbed, don’t you dare build your house on the coast, for I am the sea, and I will come back),” he said, quoting a famous couplet.

Fadnavis follow Shah
Noteworthy, the same couplet was used by Union Home Minister Amit Shah, when he was arrested in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case in 2010, under the former Home Minister P Chidambaram, India TV reported.
Sohrabuddin was allegedly killed in police custody in 2005 when Shah was then Home Minister in Gujarat state government and PM Modi was then Chief Minister of Gujarat.

The session comes a day after BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis resigned as Maharashtra Chief Minister on Tuesday merely three days after he took oath in a controversial turn of events.
