Shah meets Uddhav, seeks support for presidential election

Laurie Berry | 19 June, 2017, 14:41

Leaders from both the parties confirmed that Shah didn't give out any names or probable presidential candidates during the meeting but has reportedly assured Uddhav that once the BJP finalises a candidate, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will speak to him (Uddhav). The BJP takes Sena's suggestion of Bhagwat's name for Presidential election as "mischievous" with the intention to provoke the ruling party at the Centre.

The separatists in West Bengal are heavily armed and get support from various quarters, though Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is trying her best by inviting them for talks, the Sena said.

The BJP chief, however, reportedly enjoys cordial relations with Thackeray. Shah's visit to Uddhav's residence is politically significant since there was strong opposition to the meeting within BJP.

Amit Shah arrives at party Headquarters for BJP Parliamentary Board meeting scheduled to take place at 12 pm in Delhi on Monday.

The BJP Parliamentary Board will meet this afternoon to discuss the upcoming Presidential election.

Kovind is likely to file his papers on June 23, BJP president Amit Shah said after a almost two-hour meeting of the BJP Parliamentary Board. Information and Broadcasting Minister M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday held discussions with Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan, who heads the Lok Janshakti Party, on the July 17 presidential election.

Trump releases financial disclosure for 2016
According to the documents, Trump owes about $315 million to lenders and made almost $300 million in income over the past year. The graph below shows the the breakdown of the monthly income that Trump has listed on his three financial disclosure forms.

Mr. Shah said, "When Sonia Gandhi steps down from her post [as Congress president] everybody knows who will be the next party president". Shah urged Sena to offer support to presidential candidate.

"We hope to have a political consensus", Shah said. "In the current scenario, the Sena is still out safest bet for a stable state government", a senior BJP minister said.

According to Amit Shah, there will be a BJP government even after the election. Sena had supported the recent farmers' agitation in Maharashtra, despite being a part of the government.

Clearing the air on cricketing ties between the two neighbours, he said it was all right for them to play in global tourneys, but not on each others' soil.

Paswan said his party will stand by the Prime Minister's decision while the Samajwadi Party is understood to have favoured a politician as the new President.

In an effort to soothe the relationship between the two parties, Danve said the BJP does not want midterm polls but, if the elections are held, it is ready to face it.
