Amit Shah:No Chance Of India Pakistan Series At Their Home Grounds

Presidential Election 2017 BJP Parliamentary board to discuss Presidential nominee

The Sena's attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came barely 24 hours after Shah and Thackeray met in Mumbai for 75 minutes amid optimism of a thaw in the chilled relations between the two allies of almost three decades.

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.

In editorials in Saamana, the Marathi organ and Dopharka Saamana, its Hindi tabloid version, Thackeray, who is also the managing editor of both the newspapers, the party indirectly criticised the Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis for issuing a threat of mid-term polls and the Shah endorsing it.

Other Sena leaders and BJP state President Raosaheb Patil-Danve stayed out of the 75-minute meeting.

Mumbai: Adopting a hawkish stance, Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah on Saturday categorically ruled out resumption of bilateral cricketing ties between India and Pakistan.

The presidential election is expected to be a close affair this time as neither the ruling BJP nor the opposition parties have the numbers on their side to unilaterally elect the next president of India, the highest post in the country. Thackeray, according to party officials, said: "The Shiv Sena will remain with the NDA in the Presidential polls". Shah announced that he would not contest assembly elections in Gujarat. Shah, too, knows that the Sena will never make good on its threats.

"Once the names have been suggested, we will finalise our name for the post of president", he said.

Congress MLA Nitesh Narayan Rane took a dig at Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday when he wrote a letter to Guinness World Record, requesting to register a record in the right-wing party's name for its numerous empty promises to withdraw support from the Maharashtra government.

The party has not voted with the BJP in the last two Presidential elections. "The alliance with Sena is not a compulsion for us and we are not tolerating them", said Shah.

"Amit Shah says Maharashtra government will last its five-year term".

While the BJP leadership is in no mood to give the long rope to Matoshree, Fadnavis had taken a soft view on the Sena, pitching that at this juncture, the saffron party was the best ally to keep his government up and running.
