In a veiled threat to its ally BJP, Shiv Sena on Friday said its support to L K Advani as the Prime Ministerial candidate depends on the position the NDA lead party takes on Karnataka-Maharashtra boundary dispute over Belgaum.

This was stated by senior Shiv Sena member Manohar Joshi after meeting President Pratibha Patil as also Advani.

Joshi, a former Maharashtra Chief Minister, said the Maharashtra-Karnataka boundary dispute was one of the "very important" issues for Shiv Sena and alleged Marathi-speaking people were suffering despite a BJP government being in power in Karnataka.
