Fadnavis said, “I congratulate Bharati Vidyapeeth for launching a world-class facility. We can see a revolutionary change in healthcare sector in terms of research, diagnostics, and technology. There are changes happening on a large scale in this field.”

Kadam, a two-time MLA from Sangli district, is a popular leader in the territory dominated by the Nationalist Congress Party and the Congress.

In the first week of January, Kadam had greeted deputy chief minister by touching his feet. Kadam’s unusual gesture was noteworthy as his father-in-law, Pune-based industrialist Avinash Bhosale, is in custody of the enforcement directorate (ED). Many in political circles are joining the dots and speculating that he may join the BJP in the near future.

Speaking about some leaders growing proximity with BJP, party’s state unit chief Chandrashekhar Bawankule had earlier said, “There are many Congress leaders and workers willing to join our party from booth to the Lok Sabha level.”
