Uddhav Thackeray hints at rapprochement with Raj
Mumbai: Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray hinted that he was open to the possibility of his party joining hands with cousin Raj Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS).
The clear hint came in an interview to the party mouthpiece Saamna, Thackeray's first since his father Balasaheb Thackeray's death November 17 last year and after he took over the reins of the party January 17.
Responding to a question on whether the cousins could come together, Thackeray said: "You cannot clap with one hand. Tell me, can you?" Pushing further, Saamna's executive editor and party MP Sanjay Raut asked whether this implied the two parties could join hands?
"Why do you ask this question only to me? I am ready to reply. But for that you have to make us sit together, next to each other. Then you can ask the question to both of us. It depends on both sides," Thackeray said, hinting at the possibility of burying the hatchet with Raj.
