Thackeray had reportedly told visiting BJP chief Amit Shah yesterday that the Sena would take a call on supporting the NDA nominee for the top constitutional post only after BJP reveals its choice. AIADMK, YSR Congress and TRS, along with several regional parties, have already extended support to NDA on the presidential election.
The BJP today named Dalit leader and Bihar Governor Ram Nath Kovind as the NDA's candidate for the post of president.
NDA presidential candidate to file papers before June 24: THE ruling National Democratic Alliance's candidate for the July 17 presidential election will file his nomination papers before June 24, and the Opposition parties would be informed of the name before the papers are filed.
"The party president (Uddhav) would be touring the state in July".
"Whatever has to happen in Maharashtra mid-term polls will happen". This has been reiterated by Amit Shah.
However, Shah had said that it was his duty to call on Uddhav since Shiv Sena was one of BJP's oldest allies.
Shiv Sena will be with NDA government for the presidential polls: Uddhav Thackeray. We are hopeful of receiving Shiv Sena's support. There are 67 members from Maharashtra in Parliament - 48 in the Lok Sabha and 19 in the Rajya Sabha. The CM looks totally in command in the state and has convinced the BJP leadership about why it is important to keep the Sena in good humour atleast for now.
While a host of BJP and Sena leaders were present at the Thackeray home, none of them were part of the meeting. The total value of MP votes of the UPA is 10,620.
"Amit Shah says if mid-term polls are held in Maharashtra, they will win hands down".
He went on to add that "I think the government is going to complete its five-year term".
On the issue of recent loan waiver announced by the government, the BJP president remarked that the financial burden of the loan waiver will be on the government and not on the banks.
