The cold rapport between the BJP and the Shiv Sena has once again come to the fore. In what promises to be yet another war of words between the two the Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray has not been invited to any of the ‘Make in India’ week events to be held where Prime Minister Narendra Modi will preside, including the gala dinner of February 13, though he will be a part of other programmes.

Modi will be arriving in Mumbai February 13  to inaugurate the ‘Make in India’ event at the MMRDA grounds in Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) followed by an event at National Sports Club (NSC) ground in Worli. He will preside over a dinner in evening at Turf Club in Mahalaxmi Race Course.

Maharashtra Chief Secretary Swadheen Kshatriya said around 800 dignitaries from the country and abroad have been invited for the dinner. The guests include Prime Ministers from various countries, industrialists, select politicians and top government officials.

Meanwhile, the Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’s   Office in a release issued  said Thackeray will attend three programs.  He will be chief guest at Maharashtra Rajani, a cultural program scheduled at Girgaum Chowpaty on February 14, and Maharashtra pavilion on February 15. Thackeray will be a guest in panel discussion on ‘Make in Mumbai’ on the concluding day on February 18.
