Maharashtra: What is Triggering MVA Rift Speculations Once Again?
On 9 June, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray also had a one-on-one meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Although Thackeray said it was nothing unusual of course the meeting raised a few eyebrows.
What also created a stir, was a letter that got out in the media.
