Mumbai: Amruta Fadnavis, the wife of Maharashtra's CM-designate Devendra Fadnavis, has made it clear that she is not planning to leave her job even after his husband is sworn-in as Maharashtra CM on Oct 31, according to a report published in a leading business daily.
Amruta is presently AVP (Associate vice-president) of Axis Bank and heads its premium branch in Nagpur.
“I won't leave my job. I have worked hard to get here...I believe every woman should try to be financially independent. I will always keep working because I too want to grow intellectually. It is a strong point of my identity,” Amruta told the daily.
Amruta further added that neither she nor her husband would like her to quit the job. Amruta Ranade, whose parents are doctors in Nagpur, married Fadnavis in 2006.
Mrs. Fadnavis, however, added that she would put in a request with her employer for a transfer from Nagpur to Mumbai.
In case her request is not accepted, Amruta said that she would stay back in Nagpur and take care of Fadnavis' constituency while continuing at her present branch.
