Sena leader Anil Desai leaves for Delhi

Shiv Sena leader Anil Desai today left for Delhi ahead of the Union Cabinet expansion this afternoon, but there is no word yet on the contentious issue of the party's participation in the Maharashtra BJP government.

State Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis also left for the national capital this morning to attend the swearing-in and it is expected that parleys between the two parties may be held in Delhi.

Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray has already demanded that his party should be inducted into the Devendra Fadanvis government before it faces the trust vote.

"The picture will be clear tomorrow after meeting of Sena legislators," Uddhav had told reporters here last night.

Thackeray is slated to attend a meeting of Sena legislators in Mumbai today, ahead of the Assembly session beginning tomorrow in which the BJP government will seek trust vote.

Meanwhile, sources close to Uddhav told PTI today that if BJP is going to align with the NCP for the trust vote, then Sena is free to take its own decision.
