According to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) officials, the party President Mr. Amit Shah is likely to meet ally Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray.

Shah and Uddhav met at the latter's Kalanagar residence yesterday. The Sena had supported Congress candidate Pratibhatai Patil (2007) against the BJP candidate Bhaironsingh Shekhawat and Congress candidate Pranab Mukherjee (2012) against BJPs candidate P A Sangma.

The BJP government in the State has been under continuous fire from its ally Shiv Sena, ever since they came to power in October 2014.

The Shiv Sena on Friday said it would recommend eminent Agriculture scientist M S Swaminathan's name for the highest post if the BJP was not ready for the RSS chief's candidature.

"If a Dalit is being pitched for Dalit votes, then we are not interested.If the welfare of the country is to be ensured instead of Dalits alone, then the Shiv Sena is with you regardless of the candidate".

The Sena said that Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti was openly supporting "youth attacking" soldiers and was blaming jawans for the present situation in Kashmir. He said the BJP wanted to have a candidate elected unopposed by consensus from all political parties.

He said political parties had been informed of the NDA's choice.

The CM has called the Shiv Sena's threats "drama" in the past. "We didn't expect this from them", said Azad.

With the Sena releasing how much the BJP's needs it for July's presidential polls, the saffron party is pushing the BJP for a hard bargain.

Numbers Game In presidential elections, MPs and MLAs are voters.

The Sena further said that it appears that organisations like Islamic State, Lashkar e Taiba, Al-Qaeda and ISI have already wrested control over the critical border state.

"Amit Shah says if mid-term polls are held in Maharashtra, they will win hands down..."

"We want to touch the lives of the people like the way we have done in Maharashtra", the Rajya Sabha member said.

The presidential poll is scheduled to be held on July 17 from 10 am to 5 pm (Indian Standard Time) while the counting of votes is on July 20.
