farmers.

The chopper developed a technical snag while taking off from the helipad at Nilanga where the chief minister had gone
for an event.

“Nobody got hurt. My media advisor Ketan Pathak has suffered minor injuries. With the blessings of 11 crore people of Maharashtra, I am safe,” he told reporters at Nilanga.

He added that the pilot too had not been injured seriously. “This is a new helicopter. We will seek information from police on this incident,” the chief minister said.

Recently, on a tour to Gadchiroli in Vidarbha region, his helicopter had suffered a technical snag, following which he had travel by road to Nagpur.
