Shiv Sena cold to BJP's friendly overture in Maha
Mumbai: The Shiv Sena has indicated there will be no change in its strategy of going it alone in polls after BJP chief Amit Shah reached out to his bickering ally in a bid to pacify it. Addressing a press conference here on April 6, Shah had said the BJP hopes the Uddhav Thackeray-led party will continue to remain in the NDA fold. "They (Sena) are in the government with us now, and it is our strong desire that they remain with us," Shah had said.
In January, the Sena had announced it will not align with the BJP and go solo in the 2019 Lok Sabha and Maharashtra Assembly polls.
The Sena is currently part of the BJP-led ruling coalitions in Maharashtra as well as at the Centre.
