If she helped flood-stricken people, might she become chief minister? Annada Damre, the girl in the video, inquired. Annada asked, "When there was a flood in Assam, you waded through waters to help people. Can I become the Chief Minister by helping flood-affected people?"

Laughing, Eknath Shinde said, "Yes, you can definitely become the chief minister. We will pass a resolution on this."

Annada then requested Mr Shinde to pledge to take her to Guwahati for Diwali this year."Sure, we will go. You want to visit Kamakhaya Temple in Guwahati?" Mr Shinde asked. Annada said yes.

Mr Shinde then addressed his advisers in the room, saying,"The girl is very smart."

Last month, Eknath Shinde staged a mutiny with at least 39 Shiv Sena members of the Legislative Assembly that finally compelled former Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray to stand down.

Arrived in Guwahati on June 22, the Eknath Shinde-led camp.

Devendra Fadnavis of the BJP and Shinde of the Bharatiya Janata Party were sworn in as India's new prime ministers on June 30.
