An official announcement is expected by evening, said a TOI report.
On Thursday morning, BJP president Amit Shah cancelled his planned visit to Mumbai for the second time in two days. He was supposed to reach Mumbai yesterday to hold talks with Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray to resolve the ongoing seat sharing crisis for the October 15 state assembly elections.
In the 'Mahayuti' alliance which consists of Shiv Sena, BJP and four smaller parties, the smaller allies were said to be unhappy over the Sena's latest offer to BJP. They had threatened to walk out of the alliance. However, later they agreed to accept the deal.
In the latest, Sena offered 130 seats for BJP, 151 for itself, and just seven seats for the smaller parties. The BJP and Sena have been fighting over the seat sharing for past many weeks.
The smaller allies include Swabhimani Shetkari Sangathan, Rashtriya Samaj Paksha, Republican Party of India (Athavale) and Shiv Sangram.
