Soon we will have BJP-Shiv Sena coordination panel: Raosaheb Danve


BJP and Shiv Sena will set up a high- power committee for better coordination between the two major saffron partners in the government within a week, Maharashtra BJP President Raosaheb Danve said here today.

Both partners, particularly the BJP, felt that such coordination is essential in the wake of periodic outbursts against the government by the Sena and counter-attack by a few BJP leaders, Danve told reporters here. Danve, who is here to interact with party workers in the region, said the committee would comprise five to six members from both the parties.

“I had a detailed discussion with Sena leaders, Subhash Desai and Anil Desai in this regard and both the parties agreed for such a formula to ensure smooth functioning of the government,” Danve said

He refused to give the name the members of the proposed committee,. “Just wait for another week, you will get the details,” he quipped.

Danve said the state BJP would enroll about one crore members of the party from the state by March 31, which was the target given to it.

Similarly, the BJP, on a nationwide basis, would soon have a total membership of 10 crores.
The BJP chief would be touring the entire state of Maharashtra and later announce the State Executive Committee. Danve, who is also the Union Minister of State for Consumer Affairs, said in keeping with the tradition of ‘one-man, one-post’, he would resign from the central cabinet well before the commencement of the Budget session.

No tiff between CM-Revenue Minister
He also claimed that there was no dispute between Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Revenue Minister Eknath Khadse. He said both have better understanding of things and anybody’s absence in the meeting does not necessarily indicate any debate. Raosaheb Danve also pointed out that nobody questioned Finance Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar’s absence in the meeting, whereas issue is being made out of the other case.
