PM Modi to meet BJP MPs, allies over high tea at 7RCR today
The government will also discuss with its allies the development work and schemes initiation over the past five months.

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will on Sunday evening host a high tea for all NDA MPs at his residence in the national capital. This would be the first time when all the MPs of NDA will come together since the BJP led-government assumed office.

An invitation has been extended to all allies including Shiv Sena MPs inspite of the alliance in Maharashtra being recently called off before the Assembly elections. They are all expected to be present including lone Sena minister in the government, Anant Geethe.

Geethe said, "MPs have no agenda. PM is hosting a gathering to discuss government agenda. The people of Maharashtra want BJP and Shiv Sena to run the government together. Decision will be taken in the favour of people of Maharashtra."

The invite is also being seen as an attempt at rapprochement by both as government formation talks in Maharashtra have progressed in the past week. The government will also discuss with its allies the development work and schemes initiation over the past five months.

Meanwhile, talks between BJP and Shiv Sena over government formation in Maharashtra have progressed in the last week. A Gadkari loyalist, Sudhir Mungantiwar, has reiterated that the state unit wanted Gadkari as the chief minister. Senior leader from north Maharashtra, Eknath Khadse too threw his hat in the ring saying that people wanted a chief minister from north Maharashtra.

Meanwhile, 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.

On the eve of the BJP central observers visit to Mumbai to elect the legislature party leader, the race for the CM hasn't been settled. Devendra Fadnavis remains the front runner with the Sangh and the top brass backing him.
