CM Devendra Fadnavis sends defamation notice to Digvijaya Singh
Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis sent a defamation notice to Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh Sunday, a day after the latter accused him of favouring a private sector bank where his wife Amruta Fadnavis works.

On March 18, Singh had tweeted: “SRA in Mumbai headed by CM of Maharashtra has officially asked all SRA developers to open accounts only in Worli branch of Axis Bank.” In the next tweet, he said, “Do you know why ? Mrs Fadnavis is the Vice President of Axis Bank ! A windfall for the Axis Bank a private Bank. Height of Nepotism !”
