Nagpur, July 28 (UNI) BJP all-India general secretary Gopinath Munde today said his party would take a decision before August 15 on its alliance with the Shiv Sena.

Speaking to newsmen on the sidelines of a day long BJP convention here, Mr Munde said the decision would be taken at a meeting of the party's state unit office-bearers.

''Right now, we are assessing the opinion of the party workers and elected representatives on the alliance with the Sena,'' he said.

Admitting that the relations between the saffron allies had become strained, Mr Munde said the main reason was the stand taken by the Shiv Sena at the recent Presidential polls.

''There is no other reason. The projection of their leaders on the future chief minister has not affected the alliance,'' he said.

Mr Munde said he was not aware of the stand taken by the Shiv Sena for the Vice-Presidential polls, slated for next month.

The BJP leader declined to blame either for the fissures in their relationship and also to predict how long the alliance would last.

''I cannot say what will happen in future. Alliances are not made for a specific period of time,'' he added.
