Fadnavis held a marathon four-hour meeting with the BJP ministers Tuesday evening.

"Virtually laying down a kind of model code of conduct for the BJP ministers, the CM asked us not to take decisions on files ignoring the opinions of desk officers and secretaries," a minister who attended the meeting said on Wednesday.

Fadnavis asked his colleagues to learn lessons from Khadse's resignation in wake of a series of allegations including irregularities in a land deal in Pune.

The meeting was also attended by the state BJP president Raosaheb Danve and senior state BJP leaders.
