NAGPUR: Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis today said Nana Patole, who recently resigned as an MP from the Bhandara-Gondia constituency as well as from the BJP, would realise his mistake very soon.

On December 8, the BJP MP from Maharashtra, who had been critical of the state government and had taken potshots at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, had said he had resigned from the party and the Lok Sabha.

To a query on Patole's resignation from the BJP, Fadnavis said, "Nana Patole has done this earlier and he is repeating it again. Very soon, he will realise that he has made a mistake. So, until then, let him do what he wants to." In the past, Patole has been a member of other parties, including the Congress. He had joined the BJP before the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, in which he defeated NCP heavyweight Praful Patel from the Bhandara-Gondia constituency.

The chief minister, however, evaded a question on a letter written to him by Katol's BJP MLA Ashish Deshmukh on the issue of a separate state of Vidarbha.

Deshmukh has urged Fadnavis to take steps to carve out a separate state of Vidarbha.

"The letter written by Ashish Deshmukh reached the media first and I received it only today. I will comment on it after reading it," Fadnavis said.
