Talks with BJP Still on , Says Shiv Sena Chief

Untitled-5The Chief of Shiv Sena Uddhav Thackeray attempted today to clear the air in BJP-Shiv Sena seats row as he said that the talks between the two parties have not been called off.

Speaking to the reporters, Uddhav confirmed that his party is firm on its demand of at least 150 seats out of 288 assembly seats.

Reportedly, BJP wants to convince on contesting 135 each.

Uddhav said, “BJP had mission 272, what’s wrong if we have mission 150”.

“Alliance with BJP isn’t just for power, it’s for Maharashtra,” he added.

Both the parties have been in the race of Chief Minister post in the state.

Shiv Sena chief had also raised questions on much talked ‘Modi wave’ in a recent interview which has haunted the BJP.

The state chief of BJP Devendra Fadanvis had earlier said, “There is huge discontent among our rank and file over the statements made by the Sena leadership against our leader, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a television programme on Saturday. This has reached our higher-ups. Now, we have decided that we will not make any effort anymore to talk to them on seat-sharing”.
