Patch up bid: Amit Shah to meet Uddhav Thackeray

The meeting assumes significance in the wake of strained relations between the two saffron alliance partners.

In a surprising political development, BJP President Amit Shah would meet his Shiv Sena counterpart Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday.

The meeting is scheduled to be held in Matoshree, the Bandra bungalow of the Thackeray family.

The meeting assumes significance in the wake of strained relations between the two saffron alliance partners.

It may be recalled in the Palghar ST bye-election, the BJP and Shiv Sena contested against each other in which the former won by a margin of 29,000 votes.

The BJP roped in Rajendra Gavit, who resigned from the Congress to contest the polls after Sena had fielded Shrinivas Vanaga, the son of late BJP MP Chintaman Vanaga, whose untimely death necessitated the polls.

After the results came in, Thackeray had reiterated that Sena would go alone in future polls.
Thackeray also took on the Election Commission and ask political parties to join hands and raise the issue of EVMs.

On Monday, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis held a meeting of state district presidents, in which he asked them to prepare for polls irrespective of whether the alliance happens or not.

In his first reaction, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said that the NDA partners are not happy and are leaving one by one. "In Palghar polls, we have shown our strength," he said.
