On Wednesday, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis flew into Ahmednagar in western Maharashtra to hold a rally in support the BJP's candidate, Sujay Vikhe-Patil. "A vote for Sujay will be a vote for (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi," Mr Fadnavis said. Mr Vikhe-Patil, the son of Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil, the Congress party's leader of opposition in Maharashtra, was with the Congress recently. His crossing sides to the BJP sent shockwaves through the political establishment. Sujay Vikhe-Patil is a big catch for the BJP, not just for his father's stature: the family controls at least three sugar cooperatives in Ahmednagar: Dr VV Patil Pravara Sugar Mill, Dr BB Tanpure Sugar Mill and Ganesh Sugar Factory.
