Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and discussed issues related to the Maratha reservation, Metro car shed and GST compensation. Deputy Chief Minister and senior NCP leader Ajit Pawar, and senior Congress leader Ashok Chavan accompanied Thackeray.
“We may not be politically together but that doesn’t mean our relationship has broken. ‘Main koi Nawaz Sharif se nahi milne gaya tha’ (I didn’t go to meet Nawaz Sharif). So if I meet him (PM) separately in person, there is nothing wrong with it,” the Maharashtra CM said in Delhi. The Shiv Sena is in alliance with the NCP and Congress in Maharashtra and the government is named Maha Vikas Aghadi .
Commenting on the vaccines, Uddhav remarked, We’d require 12 cr doses to inoculate 6 cr people twice, in 18-44 yrs group. We tried but couldn’t do it as there wasn’t adequate & steady supply. Thankful to PM for centralising vaccine procurement. I hope everyone in India is vaccinated soon.
Earlier before the meeting, State Home Minister Dilip Walse Patil had said that issues like Maratha reservation, Other backward classes reservation and Cyclone Tauktae relief will be discussed .
