Shiv Sena, the oldest ally of BJP, is unhappy over being given only one ministerial berth and that too Heavy Industries portfolio in the Narendra Modi government and has complained to the BJP leadership.
Modi has included Anant Geete, a senior leader of Shiv Sena in his Cabinet, but he did not assume the charge of the Heavy Industries Ministry today because of being unhappy over the portfolio, sources said.
Sena sources said the party was expecting more ministerial berths as it is the second largest party in the NDA with 18 members in the Lok Sabha.
Coupled with this unhappiness, the party was given Heavy Industries portfolio, which upset it further.
Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, who had come to Delhi to attend the swearing-in of Council of Ministers yesterday, has taken up this issue with BJP leadership, party sources said.
