Mumbai, Oct 24: An all party delegation of legislators from north Maharashtra met Governor S C Jamir, at Raj Bhavan, on Thursday October 23, and urged him to form a separate development board for Khandesh.
The delegation of 20 legislators was led by former minister Rohidas Patil and comprised of Surupsingh Naik, Sureshdada Jain, Amrish Patel, and other people’s representatives from the five districts of the northern part of the state.
