She might be the wife of Chief Minister, yet it didn’t deter her to continue her job. The lady in question and woman of the moment is Amruta Fadnavis, wife of newly-elected Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis. Ms Amruta is currently working as a senior Vice President in Axis Bank of Nagpur and she came under the spotlight after her husband has been elected as the CM. Although Devendra sworn-in as CM, Armuta is in no mood to quit her job and is keen to continue it. “I’d request the higher officials to transfer me to Mumbai for the convenience. If not transferred also, I’ve no qualms in working in the same branch. Also, I’d be close to my husband’s constituency (Nagpur South West constituency).”
Amruta is a complete and perfect wife of Devendra as she never asked him much time for family. The couple has a five-year-old daughter Divija Fadnavis. Soon after Devendra’s elevation to CM of Maharashtra, Amruta wrote on her Facebook wall, “Congratulations Devendra for being the second youngest CM. The real test begins now. Your service to the state begins from Day 1. Best luck.”
Devendra has come a long way in politics. At 21, he was the youngest corporator for Nagpur who went on to become Mayor of Nagpur for twice. He started his career as a ward-convenor and gradually climbed ranks within the party. He is presently state president of the BJP’s Maharashtra unit. He happens to be the first CM of BJP in Maharashtra and the second-youngest CM of Maharashtra till date. Devendra was hand-picked by Mr Narendra Modi.
