Independent MLA Ravi Rana today warned that he and six other independent legislators supporting the BJP-led Maharashtra government would withdraw their support if Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis is replaced.
"We have heard that a section of the BJP is contemplating replacing the CM," Rana, MLA from Badnera in Amravati district, said.
He said Fadnavis alone was capable of providing reservation to Maratha and Dhangar-communities.
