Uddhav is reportedly said to have urged the two parties to make progress in the right direction by joining hands and have also asked BJP to overlook the past incidents.

However, on the other side, BJP is maintaining silence and is yet to disclose any official confirmation over a possible tie-up with the Sena.

The alliance between BJP and Shiv Sena witnessed a split prior to the elections, causing the two to take part in the elections individually.

BJP took pole position by winning in 122 seats, but fell short of absolute majority to form the government individually. Standing second is Shiv Sena with a tally of 63 from the total seats of 288.
