Modi at tea party
New Delhi, Oct 26: A day after he tried to bridge gap between media and the Government over tea, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday will meet all the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) MPs at his residence in New Delhi.

The move is being seen as an attempt to boost BJP's ties with its alliance partners.

PM Modi will meet the NDA MPs at tea in the evening today. This would be the first time when all the MPs of NDA will come together since the BJP led-Government assumed office.

An invitation in this regard has been sent to all the allies including Shiv Sena with which the BJP recently snapped its ties in Maharashtra. Report suggests that all the MPs including party's lone Minister in Modi's Government, Anant Geethe will be present in the meeting.

The invitation to Shiv Sena for high tea is being considered as an attempt to re-strengthen the alliance. Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray would not be present in the meeting. Clarifying on the issue, Shiv Sena said that the event is meant only for MPs belonging to the Centre's ruling alliance so there leader will not attend the meeting.

"I will attend it and so will all Sena MPs," Shiv Sena's lone member in the Narendra Modi government Anant Geete told PTI.

"The event that the PM is hosting is only for the MPs of NDA partners. When Uddhavji is not an MP, where is the question of him being invited? This is not even a question worth asking," a senior Sena leader told PTI on condition of anonymity.

Meanwhile, talks between BJP and Shiv Sena over Government formation in the State have progressed in the last week. The BJP sources said that the new BJP Government in Maharashtra was likely to be sworn in on October 29 or 30. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh will be in the state on Monday.
