Sena likely to back NDA president nominee

20 Juin, 2017, 16:51 | Author: Claudine Rigal

Sources close to the BJP leadership had earlier told News18 that Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav and Naresh Agarwal met Union minister Venkaiah Naidu and communicated that they would want a "political person" in the Raisina Hill.

However, Shah had said that it was his duty to call on Uddhav since Shiv Sena was one of BJP's oldest allies.

On Sunday, Shah went to Thackeray's Bandra home, seeking his support for the NDA's presidential candidate.

It may be recalled that in the past the Sena has taken stand diametrically opposite to the BJP during the 2007 and 2012 presidential polls.

The Congress and other opposition parties might put forward former West Bengal Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi and former Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar's names for the country's top post. In the past two presidential elections, Shiv Sena did not back the NDA candidate and supported Pratibha Patil and Pranab Mukherjee, respectively.

The BJP chief said the NDA government had taken up the cause of the downtrodden, women, tribals, farmers and weaker sections of society and did not have a single allegation of corruption against it. Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, state BJP president Raosaheb Danve and Shiv Sena youth wing chief Aditya Thackeray were also present during the meeting.

The Sena's scathing attack on Shah came a day after he met party president Uddhav Thackeray at the latter's residence "Matoshree". As per a report, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is slated to chair the Crucial BJP meet in Delhi.

"We wish them all the best". "Thackeray told Shah that his party should declare the name then only the Shiv Sena can decide whether to extend the support".

The BJP Parliamentary Board meeting - which was scheduled to shortlist the candidate for the country's top post today - was attended by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah. They can also win the Presidential elections. But the BJP is expected to contact opposition leaders once again after the name of its Presidential candidate is decided.

Asked about Fadnavis' remark that the BJP was prepared for snap Assembly elections, in an apparent reference to the continued strain in ties with the Shiv Sena, Shah on Saturday said, "What he meant was that if mid-term polls are forced on us, we are ready to fight".
