Mumbai: Ahead of the announcement of assembly polls result, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray has called a meet of all party leaders in Mumbai to discuss the party's future strategy.
The meeting is expected to discuss Sena's possible ‘re-union' with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the backdrop of almost all exit polls predicting that the saffron party would emerge as the single largest party in the 288-member Assembly followed by the Shiv Sena.
The party had on Friday, apparently referring to the BJP, said that ‘there should be no bitterness any more'.
According to India TV-CVoter exit poll, the BJP would be the single largest party within a range of 133-143 seats, clearly short of the magical figure of 145.
The BJP is followed by former ally Shiv Sena with a range of 54-64 seats.
The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) is projected to win within a range of 25-35 seats, followed by former ally Congress within a range of 36-46 seats.
Raj Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) is projected to bag 9-15 seats.
In the 2009 assembly elections in Maharashtra, the Congress-NCP United Progressive Alliance (UPA) had won 144 seats, the BJP-Shiv Sena NDA had won 90 and 'Others' 54 seats.
Results of October 15 polling will be announced tomorrow.
