Uddhav, Rajnath meet RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat

Nagpur: Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray today met RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat here.

Thackeray, who arrived here this morning, drove to the RSS headquarters where he met Bhagwat. Their meeting lasted for about an hour.

What transpired between the two leaders is not known, but Sangh sources claimed it was a courtesy call by Thackeray, whose party is an ally in the BJP-ruled coalition at the Centre and Maharashtra.

Later, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh also met Bhagwat.

Singh and Thackeray among other politicians were here to attend the wedding of Union minister Nitin Gadkari’s daughter.

The Winter session of Maharashtra Legislature is beginning here from tomorrow, which is likely to be a stormy one with the Opposition expected to raise the issue of demonetisation and its impact on common man.

The Sena has been critical of the implementation of the Centre’s demonetisation drive.
