The NCP leader assumed office last year in May after winning the crucial Bhandara-Gondiya bypoll. Mr Kukde beat the BJP candidate in the constituency by a huge margin. The bypolls were held after BJP leader Nana Patole resigned from the Lok Sabha. He later joined the Congress. The Congress had extended its support to Mr Kukde for the by elections.
