A confirmation to this regard came from Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut who said, “Uddhav ji has decided to attend the dinner to be hosted by Modi ji today,” Further, Raut told PTI that, A Sena leader termed the dinner invite as Modi’s diplomacy in which he will try and get consent over a name for the Presidential election slated in July. All members of Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha and state assemblies are voters in Presidential polls. “Though the BJP has majority in Lok Sabha and it is in power in several states, they do not want the allies to give any reason to complain. That is why Modiji is to host the dinner,” said sources from the party.

Besides, Shiv Sena, other parties including SAD, LJP and members of the North-East Democratic Alliance – Naga People’s Front and Sikkim Democratic Front, are among few parties likely to attend the meeting.
