Union minister Nitin Gadkari on Monday filed his nomination for the Nagpur Lok Sabha seat, where election will be held on April 11. Gadkari, who had emerged victorious by defeating Vilas Muttemwar (Congress) in the 2014 elections by a margin of 2.84 lakh votes, was confident of his victory this time too.
“This time, I will win with a bigger margin. People have a good opinion of the work done by the Narendra Modi-led government in the last five years. Our government did more than (was promised in) the poll manifesto,” Gadkari told reporters.
While filing his nomination Gadkari was accompanied by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, Energy Minister Chandrashekar Bawankule, family members and a large number of party workers.
