Amid the ‘invisible’ tension in Maharashtra over Shiv Sena’s stand on Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, senior Shiv Sena leader Manohar Joshi on Tuesday said that his party and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) can come together in the near future. 

While talking to the media, former Maharashtra Chief Minister Manohar Joshi said that Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray will take a decision on the issue at the right time. 

Instead of fighting over small issues, it is better to tolerate some things. It is good to share issue which you feel strongly about. If both parties work together, it will be beneficial for both of them,” said Joshi.

This happened after Shiv Sena supported the CAB in Lok Sabha as 18 of their MPs voted in favour of the bill. However, after Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray’s remarks, Shiv Sena made a U-turn on its stand on the CAB. 

If Shiv Sena supports the CAB in Rajya Sabha, its alliance with Congress in Maharashtra may be in trouble. According to Katta News, it is likely that Congress may pull out from the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA).
