In an official statement, Mr Fadnavis said he would start his tour from Baramati, the hometown of NCP chief Sharad Pawar, and would visit nine districts including Pune, Solapur and Osmanabad.

The purpose of the visit is to offer support to farmers who suffered crop damage due to rains, the release stated.
