Sena-BJP Meeting Over, Further Discussion to be in Mumbai after Diwali

New Delhi, Oct 22: Top leaders of Shiv Sena, who arrived in New Delhi on Tuesday night for discussion with the BJP over the formation of government in Maharashtra, have returned back to Mumbai on Wednesday morning with no conclusion.  Further discussion will be held between two parties in Mumbai after Diwali.

As per the report, Sena leaders Anil Desai, a Rajya Sabha member and Subhash Desai met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and BJP general secretary JP Nadda, who are expected to visit Mumbai after Diwali to discuss on the formation of government.

BJP had always been soft hearted toward Shiv Sena even after the split of their long-time ally over the seat sharing for the assembly polls in Maharashtra. Even Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who had campaigned extensively in the state for BJP, had not spoken anything against Sena.

BJP emerged as the single-largest party in Maharashtra, winning 122 seats in the 288-member assemblu pushing Shiv Sena to the number 2 position in the elections. However, the party fell short of mmajority to form the government for which it need support from other parties. Even though, NCP initially offered unconditional suport to the BJP after the results decared, the safforn party prefers to be with its old ally to form the government in the western state.
