  • According to the portfolio-sharing arrangement that is being worked out by the three main parties, NCP’s Jayant Patil, who has already been sworn in as a minister, could become the deputy chief minister and given the home portfolio.

    “When there is a change in administration and you’ve a big project going on, it is important to have a courtesy call. Uddhav Thackeray and the various coalition people that he has around them need to meet people who are doing big projects or those wanting to do big projects in their state,” said Branson, the founder of the diversified conglomerate Virgin Group.

    "Instead of fighting over small issues, it is better to tolerate some things. It is good to share issues which you feel strongly about. If both parties work together, it is beneficial for both," he said. "It is not that Shiv Sena will never go with the BJP again. Uddhav Thackeray will take the right decision at the right time," Joshi said.
