Shiv Sena should join BJP govt in Maharashtra, says Subramaniam Swamy

"I believe Shiv Sena should join the government in Maharashtra," said Swamy.

Senior BJP leader Subramaniam Swamy on Saturday met Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray at his residence Matoshree in Mumbai suburbs. Swamy said, “I believe Shiv Sena should join the government in Maharashtra. Both parties share the common idelogy of Hindutva. It would be good for stability of the government.”

Swamy said, “I will talk to BJP president Amit Shah, union ministers Nitin Gadkari and Arun Jaitley.” He said, “I have known Uddhav Thackeray since he was a small boy.”

However, BJP spokesperson clarified that Swamy was not deputed as party emissary for the discussions. It was his own initiative to approach Thackeray.

Apart from Thackeray those present during the meeting included senior party leader Subash Desia and Aditya (son of Uddhav).
