BJP-Shivsena Meeting: Amit Shah and Uddhav Thackeray meeting today in Mumbai

On Wednesday (June 6th), BJP President Amit Shah will meet Shiv-Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray to dissolve the dispute between these two. It is being considered that this meeting of both the party presidents is being done in the wake of the Lok Sabha elections in 2019. Shiv Sena Senior leader and MP Sanjay Raut said, “Amit Shah sought time to meet Uddhav. According to this, he has been given time to meet on Wednesday evening”. However, he questioned on the need of meeting with Uddhav Thackeray after four years. BJP President Shah will meet Uddhav Thackeray at his residence in Mumbai and next day he will go to Chandigarh where he will meet Prakash Singh Badal and Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Badal.

In addition to the meeting in Mumbai and Chandigarh, Amit Shah has also directed to organize a grand function for all the NDA allies on June 7 in Bihar’s capital, Patna. Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi and Union Minister Ramvilas Paswan and Upendra Kushwaha will be available in this. All NDA allied legislators and Bihar MPs have been invited for this meeting.

Prior to this, Shiv-Sena President Uddhav Thackeray has said,”His party(Shiv-Sena) ‘ruined’ 25 years in the alliance with BJP and said that as soon as his party feels that he is being ‘disgraced’, he will move from the government. The Shiv Sena chief, however, also said that he will never blackmail the BJP, never stabbing them in their back. He further said,”50 years of our(Shiv-Sena) beginning is completed in June and more than half the time( means 25 years), we have been in the alliance (with the BJP).” Thackeray said, “25 years is a long time And we grew up with holding each other’s hands. But the things happened that included the collapse of the alliance during the last (assembly) elections, now I feel that we have been wasted our 25 years in Alliance”.

After meeting with the Shiv Sena president, Amit Shah will also meet Industrialist Ratan Tata, singer Lata Mangeshkar, and all-time favorite actress Madhuri Dixit. During this meeting, Shah will share the achievements of the Modi government. After the completion of four years of Modi government on May 26, the BJP started a contact campaign for support. In this campaign, four thousand office bearers of the party will contact and meet-up with one lakh people who are famous in their respective areas so that they can disseminate information about the functioning of the government for four years.
