With Amit Shah kicking off his 95-day nation wide tour with Mumbai, it'll be interesting to see BJP thwart the challenges ahead of it, the primary being the Presidential election. Sources said that Mr Thackeray has refused to extend a blanket support to the BJP candidate without knowing who it is.
Shah defended the approach of his party in meeting opposition leaders over presidential election without proposing a name.
"I am holding a meeting of Shiv Sena leaders tomorrow to take a decision on this", said Uddhav.
However, Shah made it clear that both the names suggested by the Sena, that of RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and agriculture scientist MS Swaminathan weren't in the reckoning. He further questioned the need to hold meeting with allies if BJP did not wish to discuss the name with them.
Shah is scheduled to meet Uddhav Thackeray at the latter's residence "Matoshree" in suburban Bandra on Sunday.

"The burden of loan waiver will be on the Government and not banks", he had said.
Earlier, there were unconfirmed reports that the BJP was considering Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, tribal leader Draupadi Murmu and "Metro man" E Sreedharan for the top post. The Sena chief agreed, contradicting the BJP, which supported NDA candidate P.A. Sangma.
