Maharashtra farmers protest Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray warned its ally Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday evening
Shah had on Sunday met its sulking ally and Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray and his son Aditya Thackerey in Mumbai to ensure the Sena's crucial support.
The Congress said that the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) took the decision without taking the grand old party into confidence. The Sena's first preference was RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat.After Bhagwat ruled himself out, it pitched scientist MS Swaminathan.
In fact, on at least two previous occasions, the Sena had jolted the NDA by supporting Congress nominees - former President Pratibha Patil in 2009 and later current President Pranab Mukherjee in 2012. Recently, the party said if the government failed to waive farmers' loan, it would withdraw its support.
BJP President Amit Shah arrives at party headquarters for BJP Parliamentary Board meeting scheduled to take place at 12 noon in Delhi to discuss its nominee for the upcoming Presidential elections. When we asked on whom they want to build consensus, they had no answer then.
Transport Minister Diwakar Raote, while speaking to reporters here, said that Sena will raise the issue of fragile economic condition of the DCC banks after the notes recall exercise in November a year ago with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis during the cabinet meeting next week.
Shah is scheduled to meet Uddhav Thackeray at the latter's residence "Matoshree" in suburban Bandra on Sunday. Shah urged Sena to offer support to presidential candidate.
While a host of BJP and Sena leaders also graced the Thackeray home, none of them were part of the meeting.
The CPI (M) said the way Kovind's name was announced it portends that there would be a political contest.
Soon after, Thackeray said, "If you are propping up a Dalit candidate only to get Dalit votes, why should we be interested? He should be made aware that the Sena already holds a Guinness record and we are proud of it", Kayande told news agency PTI. Uddhav can't risk upsetting the political applecart in Maharashtra as he knows that loss of power may trigger widespread unrest leading to even a split in the Sena, they added.
The BJP chief ruled out resumption of bilateral cricket ties between India and Pakistan anytime soon.
