The BJP has remained non-committal to the names though it has said it is open to discussions.
Sena asks BJP to choose either Mohan Bhagwat or MS Swaminathan else nominate a candidate of their choice for the president's post whereas Amit Shah says that his party is ready for mid-term polls. However, Thackeray said he would like to know the name of the ruling party's candidate before deciding on its support in the July 17 presidential election.
Mr. Shah said, "When Sonia Gandhi steps down from her post [as Congress president] everybody knows who will be the next party president".
Uddhav on his part urged Shah to include the Sena in the selection process.More news: Lawyer: Trump Tweet Was A Reaction, Not Admission To Being Investigated

Raote said farmers at the local level would not be able to raise money for sowing and other family activities until the cooperative banks get their old notes exchanged.

On the recent farm loan waiver announced by the Maharashtra government, Mr. Shah had said through it the state was offering relief to the farmers.
Modi was welcomed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah at the party office on Ashoka Road in New Delhi area. "Hence, we are asking them to suggest names", said Shah. The party's Parliamentary Board meeting is scheduled to take place at 12 pm.
Shah said the Modi government brought an end to politics of appeasement and dynastic rule. And though the BJP does not have a clear majority in the Assembly and relies on the Shiv Sena, the BJP's electoral performance at various elections in the state have grown from strength to strength, adding to the already simmering tensions within.
