Mumbai: Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar misses meeting with BJP chief Amit Shah

Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar missed her meeting with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah on Wednesday due to her ill health.

Expressing regret on missing out the opportunity to meet the BJP leader, the singer tweeted: "Today I had a meeting with BJP President Amit Shah, but since I am suffering from food poisoning, I told him I would not be able to meet this time."

"I also requested him to meet me next time he visits Mumbai," the 88-year-old singer added.

Shah visited Mumbai on Wednesday and met Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray.

After Shah’s meeting with Thackeray, the latter has given indications that it may give support to the former in the upcoming 2019 General Elections.

The meeting assumes significance as the BJP and the Shiv Sena have been bickering despite being allies.

The two allies contested the May 28 bypoll to Palghar Lok Sabha constituency of Maharashtra separately and engaged in a bitter campaign against each other.
