In the backdrop of coming Lok Sabha elections, Shiv Sena Executive president Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday said MPs from Congress-NCP may be in touch with Sena.
"MPs whose constituencies will cease to exist after implementation of Delimitation Commission's report, may be in touch with us," Uddhav said.
"People are unhappy with the UPA government and many MPs know that they have little chances of getting re-elected. So they are in touch with us," he told reporters in the occasion where Agari Sena declared its support to Shiv Sena.
Uddhav said even if the UPA government survives after confidence motion on July 22, the Lok Sabha elections are inevitable in the next eight to nine months.
He also refuted any possibility of Sena leaders joining other parties. Uddhav said, "after seeing the plight of those who left Sena, my partymen will not take any such decision."
When asked about the nuclear deal, he refused to comment on it. He said there are many other important issues like drought, load shedding, farmers' suicides and Sena is going to raise them first for common man.
Agari Sena chief Rajaram Salvi said that his party has trust in Sena's leadership and that is why he declared support to the party.
