Shiv Sena-BJP power sharing talks to continue; closing in to sealing a deal
Mumbai (Dec. 02, 2014): Shiv Sena and BJP’s talk over power sharing will continue today amid indications that the two estranged allies were close to sealing a deal after a month long stand-off over ministerial berths.
There were reports that the Shiv Sena which had been demanding the post of the deputy chief minister and crucial Home Ministry, had toned down the demand and was ready to settle for other ministerial posts but nobody from either side confirmed the same.
The meeting between senior leaders of the two parties was held at Varsha, the official residence of Chief Minister.
"The discussions are in final phase and were held in a positive manner. Decision is pending on one or two issues with Shiv Sena," Fadnavis said after the last night's meeting.
