After an intense strain over the seat sharing between Shiv Sena and BJP for the Maharashtra polls, Yuva Sena chief Aaditya Thackeray met BJP in-charge OP Mathur to discuss a new seat sharing formula. While Aaditya Thackeray stayed clear of answering on the seat sharing, he said that the alliance was in place.
The Sena has agreed to consider a new proposal for sharing seats — Sena’s 59 and BJP’s 19 — that both parties have not won in the last 25 years.
Tempers frayed when the Sena offered 119 seats to the BJP and the party was asked to leave aside nine seats from its share for their four allies, with the Sena contributing an equal number from its share of 169 seats. Bureau report – NMTV
