The Shiv Sena leader also said he discussed CAA with PM Modi and assured that nobody needs to be afraid of it.
“We have discussed on Citizenship Amendment Act, National Register of Citizens and National Population Register. I have already cleared my stance on these issues. No one should be scared of CAA,” he told the media after meeting PM Modi.
He is also expected to meet Congress interim chief Sonia Gandhi, Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP veteran LK Advani in Delhi.
The meetings will take place amid strain between Thackeray and alliance partners – the Nationalist Congress Party and the Congress – over a host of issues, including their disparate stand on the National Population Register and the Citizenship Amendment Act.
