On the eve of Narendra Modis Mumbai visit,Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray told a gathering of supporters in Goregaon the party was never opposed to the Gujarat CMs candidature for the Prime Ministers post. He said Sena would support any candidate who spoke of Hindu welfare.
I have never opposed the candidature of Narendra Modi. Our stand is clear,whoever speaks of Hindu welfare Sena will support him, Thackeray said. Sena and Modi share an uneasy relationship. Thackeray is not happy with the Hindu Hriday Samrat reference to Modi. Sena claims the term was originally coined for its founder the late Bal Thackeray.
