Mumbai: Ashish Shelar, the city BJP chief, rubbished the reports of a secret meeting between former party president Nitin Gadkari and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena President Raj Thackeray at a five-star hotel in Mumbai on Monday.
"Let me put to rest the irresponsible speculation. No secret meetings happening between BJP and MNS," Shelar said on Twitter.
Some Marathi news-channels reported in the morning that Gadkari and Thackeray, who are known to enjoy a good rapport, were in a secret meeting at a five-star hotel, where Shelar too was present.
"Let me put to rest the irresponsible speculation. No secret meetings happening between BJP and MNS," Shelar said.
Last month Gadkari attended the ground-breaking ceremony of Goda Park, a riverbank beautification project of Nashik Municipal Corporation where MNS is in power with the BJP's support.
