Talks with BJP will continue, says Shiv Sena
Mumbai: As the uncertainty over whether former ally Shiv Sena would join the BJP government in Maharashtra persists, the Uddhav Thackeray-led party today said it was confident that “the talks between the two parties will continue in a positive manner”.
“Sena president Uddhav Thackeray had detailed discussion with BJP leaders Amit Shah and Arun Jaitley yesterday,” Shiv Sena spokesperson Neelam Gorhe said here.
“I am sure Sena and BJP representatives here will have positive talks,” she added.
“Whatever decisions that are required to be taken for the development of Maharashtra will be taken,” she said, adding, “right now, I cannot say what type of participation we will have (in the government). The decision on this would be taken by Uddhav Thackeray.”
Meanwhile, BJP today said it was sure of having the numbers to win the trust vote during the special session of the Assembly in the second week of this month.
“We will have the required number to win trust vote,” senior minister Sudhir Mungantiwar told reporters. “Talks with Sena have been positive,” he added.
