Hours when Shiv Sena in its mouth piece "Saamana" criticised the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill as an instrument that could lead to an "invisible parititon" in India, the party led by Uddhav Thackeray in an about-turn supported the government in passing the bill in the Lok Sabha. 

Sena MP Arvind Sawant told NDTV "We supported the bill in the interest of the nation. The CMP (common minimum programme) is applicable in Maharashtra only," 
Prahlad Joshi, Parliamentary Affairs Minister welcomed the support by Shiv Sena, he said "I am thankful to them. They have realised that it is in the best interest of the nation that they have supported it. As far as we are concerned, I had appealed to all the parties to support the government,"

Mr Joshi said  "That's a question you have to ask them (Sena)", On whether this thaw could be seen again in Maharashtra clearing that the Sena's support in the Lok Sabha was separate from state politics.
The Sena's about-turn in Lok Sabha came after it accused the government led by Narendra Modi of trying an "invisible partition". The Shiv Sena has also questioned whether "selective acceptance" of Hindu illegal immigrants will act as a trigger for a religious war in the country.
