Gopinath Munde meets Bal Thackeray again
April 25, 2008 13:24 IST
After having made the Central Bharatiya Janata Party leadership agree to his demands, BJP leader Gopinath Munde met Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray late on Thursday night and sought his "blessings".
Munde, who returned to Mumbai after meeting top BJP leaders including Lal Kishenchand Advani and Rajnath Singh in Delhi, had a meeting with Thackeray at his residence during which the Shiv Sena leader wished him all success, Sena sources said on Friday.
This is Munde's second visit to Thackeray's residence within a span of three days. Just before going to Delhi to meet the party bosses on Tuesday after raising a banner of revolt, Munde had met Thackeray.
Thackeray in an editorial in Sena paper Samna had expressed his support for Munde, but also advised him to "look back" before taking any step forward.
After the BJP leadership agreed to concede to Munde's demands, Thackeray in another editorial on Thursday praised him for making the BJP top brass "buckle" and also for bringing in democracy in the party.
