The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi has expressed deep grief after the passing away of Shri Laxman Jagtap, MLA in the Maharashtra Assembly.
He was elected as a member of the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly from Chinchwad for 2009 – 2014 as an independent candidate.
He contested the 2014 Lok Sabha elections from Maval constituency as a Peasants and Workers Party of India candidate.
He is contesting again for the same assembly constituency in 2014 but as BJP candidate instead. He is the current M.L.A. of Chinchwad.
He made a great contribution to public welfare and for the development of Pune and the surrounding areas. Condolences to his family and supporters. Om Shanti.”
