BJP-Shiv Sena saffron alliance would last its full term: Amit Shah
The BJP-Shiv Sena saffron alliance government in Maharashtra would complete its full five-year term, BJP president Amit Shah said on Saturday on the eve of his meeting Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray.

“We will complete full five years,” Shah told reporters at the Mumbai BJP office at Dadar here.

On a question on Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’s comment that BJP was ready for mid-term polls, he said: “He did not mean that…what he said that if the situation arises we are ready, we will contest and we would win the elections….however, let me tell you, we would complete the full five years.”

Shah is scheduled to meet Thackeray on Sunday morning during which he is expected to discuss a wide range of issues including the Presidential elections.

When it was pointed out that Shiv Sena had proposed the name of RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and agriculture scientist M S Swaminathan as the possible candidates and whether he would discuss these names with the Sena president, he said in lighter vein: “If you have any names…please give that….after fall Shiv Sena is an ally, we would discuss and finalise.”

He said that the BJP believes in consultation and hence are meeting all parties on the issue of Presidential polls. When asked why they are not proposing an name, he said: “If we propose any name…they would say it has already been decided and hence what is the need of meeting.” He also said that the name is decided we would consult other parties.
