Mumbai: Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah today met Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray in Mumbai for a meeting which is seen with much significance since the two allies have been bickering for quite some time.
Shah, accompanied by Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, met Thackeray at the latter’s residence Matoshree.
According to Marathi news channel Zee 24 Taas, Shah said BJP and Sena will fight 2019 elections together, adding that the differences will be sorted out.
The BJP has said the meeting is in connection with its Sampark for Samarthan (contact for support) campaign being led by Shah in the run up to next year’s Lok Sabha polls.
However, the meeting is being seen with much significance as the BJP and the Shiv Sena have been bickering despite being allies at the central and state level.
The two allies contested the May 28 by-polls to Palghar Lok Sabha constituency of Maharashtra separately and engaged in a bitter campaign against each other.
