In case they again come together and form their rule, the Sena will be given the Mayor’s post while BJP will control the chairperson’s position in the standing committee. The BJP has accordingly and it came to public notice after chief minister Devendra Fadnavis’ meeting with prime minister Narendra Modi in Delhi. Fadnavis is reported to be cautious about Sena and is trying for patch up between these parties. Though the BJP has kept its options open, it will not compromise with the party’s pride.
