New Delhi, April 10: The Bharatiya Janata Party led National Democratic Alliance met on Monday ahead of dinner hosted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to focus on strategy for the Presidential election in July and vice-presidential elections in August.
All 33 partners of NDA including Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray attended the meet held at Pravasi Bharatiya Kendra in Delhi. Sena was to initially boycott the meeting after its MP Ravindra Gaikwad was banned by airlines from flying after he assaulted an Air India employee. Sena attended the meet after ban on Gaikwad was lifted.
