Raosaheb Ramchandra Patil, better known as R. R. Patil (Marathi: रावसाहेब रामचंद्र पाटील) (born August 16, 1958), is an Indian politician from the state of Maharashtra. He is a leader of the Nationalist Congress Party. He got re-instated as home minister of Maharashtra after 2009 Maharashtra assembly election victory of Congress-NCP alliance. He is also the former Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra.

Patil was born in the town of Anjani in the Tasgaon taluka in the Sangli district in the state of Maharashtra.

On November 1, 2004, he was sworn in as the Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra. He is the chief of the Nationalist Congress Party's Maharashtra unit and NCP legislative party in Maharashtra. He represents Tasgaon in Sangli district in the Maharashtra legislative assembly since 1990. He was also the Home Minister of Maharashtra in the previous government.

Patil is known for his 'honest image', and is known as "Mr. Clean" in his fan circles. He is also affectionately referred to as Aaba (meaning "father")by people of Maharashtra.

His comments in the aftermath of the November 2008 Mumbai attacks, have drawn severe criticism for downplaying the gravity of the situation. He has quoted: (in Hindi) " Woh 5,000 logon ko marne aye the lekin humne kitna kum nuksan hone diya. They (terrorists) came to kill 5,000 people but we ensured minimal damage)". Sources close to him have argued that his comments are being taken out of context and that he did not intend to downplay the grievous attack.

The translation is being made incorrectly, the actual translation should be

Reporter: "kya ap ise total intelligence failure kehe sakte hai?"

R.R.Patil: "Aisa nahee hain, itane bade shahar mein ekadh hadsa ho jata hain, isleye total intelligence failure hua aisa nahe hain" [English] "Its not like that, in such a big city a singular tragedy occurs that does not mean that there is total intelligence failure"."its not like that".


He resigned on 1st December 2008 taking moral responsibility of November 2008 Mumbai attacks.
