Uddhav-Raj reconcialation on cards
Mumbai, Jan 30 : After fighting bitterly against each other and taking nasty potshots, the two warring Thackeray cousins may come together after the death of their patriarch, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray has hinted at possible reconciliation with Raj Thackeray.
In the interview to 'Saamna', Uddhav said, "If Raj Thackeray wants an alliance with the Shiv Sena, we will welcome him. I welcome every one who is genuinely willing to join hands with us."
"This is a question that the two of us (Raj and I) have to sit together and discuss. The two us have to decide the answer together," said Uddhav. Raj had split from Shiv Sena in 2005 to form the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS). If the Shiv Sena-MNS alliance is formed, it will pose major threat to NCP and Congress in the state.
Both the parties have been competitive in Maharashtra politics since then, with MNS posing a major threat to Shiv Sena as it dug into Sena's Marathi vote bank.
