He duly tweeted about each engagement on a busy morning, but the tweets that have drawn the most attention are pictures from a visit to his daughter's school.
At the school, Mr Fadnavis could be any other parent, save his formal attire - he wore a grey Nehru jacket over a white shirt and black trousers. Other parents seen in the pics favoured T-shirts, some even wore shorts.

He is seen walking holding his daughter's hand in one photograph, posing with her for a picture in another and even joining a tug-of-war contest.
He has not shared whether his side won that contest, but the young Chief Minister is winning much appreciation on Twitter for taking time out of a hectic schedule for fatherly duties.
@Dev_Fadnavis You're a good role model for other fathers who are unable to take time out of their schedule for their kids! Kudos Mr. CM!- Sushil ShamlalWadhwa (@WadhwaSushil) January 14, 2015
