After the meeting, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray said, “Our Hindutva doesn’t teach wrong politics; some people only work for their agendas, without being concerned about the country. We’ve to bring our country on the right path.” 

Thackeray added, “Who the Prime Minister will be can be discussed later. We’ll meet many political leaders today onwards.” 

The Telangana Chief Minister said, “Central agencies are being misused in a very bad manner, we condemn it. The central government should change their policy, they’ll suffer if they don’t.” 

KCR further said he and Uddhav Thackeray have done an elaborate discussion on “improving and expediting developmental issues and bringing structural and policy changes in the country.”

The Telangana Chief Minister further said, “We’ve agreed on all the issues.” 

“Both (he and Uddhav Thackeray) of us are brothers because our states share 1,000 Kms of the border. With the cooperation of the Maharashtra government, we built the Kaleshwaram project which has benefited Telangana. We look forward to working together with Maharashtra,” KCR added.

Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut and Actor Prakash Raj were also present in the meeting at Varsha bungalow – Maharashtra CM’s official residence in Mumbai.

The visit of KCR comes after he gave a call to Opposition parties to unite against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). 

On Sunday, Shiv Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ said the meeting will expedite the process of political unity at the national level against the BJP.
