Pune: Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray received Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Pune airport on Friday. It was the two leaders’ first meeting after Thackeray broke away from ally BJP and formed a Shiv Sena-led government in Maharashtra with the support of the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) last month.
Modi will attend the national conference of director-generals and inspector-generals of police, which is being held in Pune.
After receiving Modi, Thackeray left for Mumbai, said state government officials.
