Uddhav Thackrey Meets PM Modi In Delhi, Between Strain With Allies
New Delhi: Today in the national capital Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackrey met Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He is also expected to meet Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP veteran LK Advani.
The meeting will take place about Mr. Thackrey's ideology and strain between opposite alliance partners, the Nationalist Congress Party and the Congress over a host of issues, including their disparate stand on the National Population Register and the Citizenship Amendment Act.
Senior Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut has played down Mr. Thackeray's scheduled meeting with PM Modi. "Yes, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray will meet PM Modi. This is only a meeting, nothing else should be read into it. Jai Maharashtra," he tweeted in Marathi.
Hardly months after Shiv Sena, NCP and Congress's formed a government in Maharastra, breach among the three alliance partners has come on to the surface. While the NCP and Congress stand on the Citizenship Amendment Act and the NPR, earlier this week Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray extended his support to the two exercises.
The NRC (National Register of Citizens) is not there and will not be implemented in the state... The center has not discussed NRC as of now," he said.
"The CAA and the NRC (National Register of Citizens) are different and NPR is different. No one has to worry if the CAA gets implemented," he added.
Nationalist Congress chief Sharad Pawar, who had a crucial role in bringing together the Sena and the Congress, said on Tuesday they will discuss the matter with Uddhav Thackeray's party and bring it on the same page. "We will convince the Sena," he said.
Shortly after Mr. Pawar's remarks, Mr. Thackeray tweeted that he will ensure a related probe into the Koregaon-Bhima violence is not taken over by the center.
