Some Sena workers in close proximity to the former CM's convoy were seen shouting in Marathi Fadnavis' assembly poll campaign slogan: 'I will be back (as CM)' along with the Sena's traditional 'Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj ki jai' war cry.
Fadnavis also sought reopening and smooth functioning of the CM Relief Fund through the governor's office to ensure timely help for needy persons as the state was currently under President's rule.
The Supreme Court on Thursday rejected the pleas that sought re-examination of the December 14, 2018 verdict, which said there was no occasion to doubt the decision-making process in the procurement of 36 Rafale fighter jets.
"Proud of your decision & stance @Dev_Fadnavis @BJP4India @bjp4mumbai @BJP4Maharashtra," Amruta Fadnavis tweeted.
Amid the tussle over formation of new government in Maharashtra, six Shiv Sena ministers attended a meeting over agrarian crisis in the state, called by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis here.
Sena ministers present at the meeting, held at the Sahyadri State Guest House in south Mumbai, included Eknath Shinde and Ramdas Kadam, an official said.

State Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant said the government should first state what happened to the assurance of the aid of Rs 6,800 crore for those affected by the devastating floods in August this year.
Adopting a harsh tone, it accused the BJP of enacting "second act" of the "use and throw" policy while dealing with its ally.

The Shiv Sena has placed two options before the BJP for government formation in Maharashtra. If the BJP were to accept either of these, it will at least temporarily put the party into a position of subservience to its regional ally.
Ever since the BJP's tally fell in the recently-held assembly polls, results for which were announced on October 24, the Sena raised its pitch for a rotational chief ministership between the two parties for a period of 2.5 years.
Amid the ongoing tussle between the BJP and Sena over sharing of power in the next state government, Fadnavis also asserted that he will be the chief minister for another five years.
Earlier, both the parties claimed they wanted to extend Diwali greetings to the governor, and denied that there would be any political discussion on the formation of next government in the state.
The process of government formation will start after Diwali, Fadnavis said, addressing party workers at a Diwali gathering here.

Addressing a rally for October 21 state elections in Purandar assembly constituency in Pune district, Fadnavis said there was no contest this time as the opposition was weak.
Speaking at a rally at Pusad in Yavatmal district, the chief minister said Gandhi joined the campaign 'unwillingly' in view of Congress leader Salman Khurshid's remarks.
Hitting out at Pawar, the chief minister said, "Pawar is talking about farmer suicides in his rallies in Vidarbha. I want to ask him, who was in power in Maharashtra when farmers started committing suicides."
Aggrieved depositors put forth their woes to the CM, who gave them a patient hearing, but said he could not give them any assurance as the model code of conduct was in force.
Pawar said there was need to bring transformation by voting out the ruling dispensation in the state.
