Sena-BJP alliance on track; no major row remains: Joshi
After prolonged bickering over seat-sharing in Maharashtra for the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls, Shiv Sena and BJP are veering towards an alliance, with some in the BJP even claiming that the seat-sharing formula is ready.
"No serious controversy remains (on the seat-sharing issue)," senior Sena leader Manohar Joshi said in Mumbai on Monday.
"There are some minor issues but I would not like to divulge the details," he told reporters, indicating that the over two-decade old alliance was on track for the next month's polls.
Though no leader from the Sena camp has so far come on the record about seat-sharing, Joshi had recently said BJP would be contesting on 26 seats while his party would be fielding its nominees in the remaining 22 seats.
