The meeting of the board, which is BJP's highest decision making body, will also be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah. The tug of war between both the parties continued as Sena asked BJP to choose either RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat and Agriculture Expert MS Swaminathan or nominate a candidate of their choose for the president's post.

On Friday, the first meeting between the government and the opposition on presidential elections remained inconclusive as no names were discussed by either side.

In fact, even as the Shah-Thackeray "summit" was announced on Thursday, the Shiv Sena fired missives at neighbouring Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who is grappling with a farmers' agitation. Apart from Uddhav, Shah's closed-door meeting in Matoshree, the Thackeray home in suburban Bandra, also included CM Devendra Fadnavis and Uddhav's son Aaditya Thackeray. The nomination of the BJP Presidential candidate is likely to be filed by June 23, as Prime Minister Narendra Modi is leaving for the United States on June 24.

The Presidential polls, if needed, will be held on July 17 and the counting of votes will take place on July 20.

Bhagwat, 66, recently said he is not interested in the president's post.

Mumbai: As declared on Sunday, a ministerial group has started deliberations with state political leaders and experts on the criteria for waiver of farmers' loans.

On Kashmir issue, Shah said the state's PDP-BJP government was working on a solution which will "change the current picture".

Mumbai: Adopting a hawkish stance, Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah on Saturday categorically ruled out resumption of bilateral cricketing ties between India and Pakistan. "We want to touch the lives of the people like the way we have done in Maharashtra", the Rajya Sabha member said.

Paswan said his party will stand by the Prime Minister's decision while the Samajwadi Party is understood to have favoured a politician as the new President.

So far, LJP has extended full support to PM MOdi's choice, Shiv Sena has hinted at same, while SP has shown interest in a political candidate.
