Amid Modi chants time and again, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit in Mumbai has brought to rest all speculations of the alliance. The camaraderie that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis shared with Shiv Sena Executive President Uddhav Thackeray was unmistakable. This was evident both by words and gestures as seen during the event. The first being when the Prime Minister called UT his younger brother, bringing a big smile on UT’s face.
Then when Shiv Sena Executive President Uddhav Thackeray took to the mic, the strong relationship that he shares at the moment with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis was at complete display. Uddhav Thackeray began with praising the Prime Minister on all fronts. Speaking about Chandrayaan 2, Uddhav Thackeray said that it proves that the nation has a great team of talented people and what it lacked until now was a leader to lead from the front.
Uddhav Thackeray also said the alliance with the BJP will sustain. He said that the alliance is ‘atal’ that is inevitable, adding that they want power for developing the state.
The strong understanding he shares with CM DF could be seen as UT joked that the CM had clapped the hardest when he announced yuvti will win the state again.
Leaders of the BJP and the Sena have held a primary round of talks in a bid to seal a seat-sharing deal. As per reports, the Sena wants the BJP to adhere to the 50:50 formula; which means both the parties contesting equal number of seats. However, poll managers of the BJP are arguing for more seats to accommodate leaders from Opposition parties and its “growing political might”. Of the total 288 seats, the BJP and the Sena have agreed to allocate 18 seats to smaller allies, but a formal deal is yet to be worked out. #ZebaWarsia – NMTV News
