A meeting which is seen with much significance since the two allies have been bickering for quite some time.Mr Shah walked into Uddhav Thackeray's residence in north-west Mumbai's Bandra to attempt to talk the Shiv Sena leadership out of carrying out this threat. In an over-hour long one-on-one meeting, Uddhav Thackeray flagged many questions and complaints, including the lack of the NDA coordination meeting that were a regular feature in the Vajpayee-era. He also brought up several complaints against the state leadership of the BJP including how Shiv Sena ministers were not given importance and sometimes completely ignored.The BJP has said the meeting is in connection with its Sampark for Samarthan (contact for support) campaign being led by Shah in the run up to next year's Lok Sabha polls.The Sena and the BJP contested the May 28 bypolls to Palghar Lok Sabha constituency in Maharashtra separately and engaged in a bitter campaign against each other.
The Shiv Sena has particularly been upset with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and has repeatedly attacked him.
After facing defeat in the Palghar bypoll at the hands of the BJP, the Shiv Sena labelled its ally as its "biggest political enemy".
