Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday on many important issues like Maratha reservation, damage caused by storms and vaccination. The special thing was that the meeting was scheduled a day before and both of them did the meeting alone.
This conversation went on for a long time, for about an hour and forty minutes. When asked questions, Uddhav said, ‘Even though we are not together politically, it does not mean that our relationship is over. I had gone to meet Nawaz Sharif only a few times, who would have met secretly. What is wrong if I meet him in person?’
