With less than four months left for elections for a new President of India, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party's ally in Maharashtra, Shiv Sena, indicated its support cannot be taken for granted. In an exclusive interview to NDTV, senior Shiv Sena leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut said that Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray is in touch with a range of parties, including the BJP's rivals. "I am saying anyone who wants support (for their candidates), those people have started working on PR and communication (with Uddhav Thackeray). This is politics. The election of the President is also under politics, it is not neutral anymore," he said.
