Alliance with Shiv Sena intact: BJP

Alliance with Shiv Sena intact: BJP

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Rajnath Singh Friday denied any rift with ally Shiv Sena. "Shiv Sena and the BJP are very old allies. I am confident that this alliance will remain intact," Rajnath Singh said Friday.

"It is beyond my imagination to think that the alliance between BJP and Shiv Sena can ever break," he said.

Rajnath Singh's comments come as a rift seemed to be appearing between the two parties after former BJP president Nitin Gadkari met Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) leader Raj Thackrey.

Shiv Sena's decision to field candidates from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Delhi is being seen as a challenge to the BJP.
