Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray to meet PM Modi and Sonia Gandhi today

Another disagreement in the Maha Vikas Aghadi alliance is the Elgar Parishad case, which has been handed over to the National Investigation Agency

New Delhi: Chief Minister of Maharashtra Uddhav Thackeray on Friday to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi in Delhi. This will be his first visit to the New Delhi almost three months after forming the Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government along with the Nationalist Congress Party and the Congress.

Senior ShivSena leader and Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Raut have played down Thackeray’s scheduled meeting with PM Modi. “Yes, CM Uddhav Thackeray will meet PM Modi. This is only a meeting, nothing else. Jai Maharashtra,” he tweeted.

After the ShivSena, Congress and NCP formed a government in Maharashtra, cracks among the three alliance partners have come on to the surface. opposing to the NCP and Congress’s stand on the Citizenship Amendment Act and the National Population Register, CM Uddhav Thackeray earlier this week extended his support to the two exercises.

Thackeray said, “The CAA and the NRC (National Register of Citizens) are different and NPR is different and no one has to worry if the CAA gets implemented,”. ‘The NRC (National Register of Citizens) is not there and will not be implemented in Maharashtra. The central government has not discussed NRC as of now,”.

NCP chief Sharad Pawar, who had a crucial role in bringing together the ShivSena 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,”

Another disagreement in the Maha Vikas Aghadi alliance is the Elgar Parishad case, which has been handed over to the National Investigation Agency.  Pawar has claimed the case was transferred the day state ministers met police officers.

On Pawar’s statement, Thackeray tweeted that he will ensure a related probe into the Koregaon-Bhima violence is not taken over by the central government.
