“Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s comment at an event got him laughs but also set speculation on fire, with many state politicians wondering if he was dropping a big hint. As he began his speech at a programme in Aurangabad, Uddhav Thackeray referred to Union Minister and senior BJP leader Raosaheb Danve as “my former friend – and if we come together again, then future friend”. The Chief Minister, who is also the Shiv Sena chief, clarified later in his speech that he was only joking as he had met his old friend Raosaheb Danve after a long time. The BJP, which apparently initiated efforts to patch up with its former ally after their bitter break-up in 2019 over power sharing in Maharashtra, read more into the statement than the Shiv Sena may have wanted.
