While Thackeray and Fadnavis have been political rivals since 2019 after their fallout post-state assembly elections the same year, Thursday's meeting has prompted questions about whether the two leaders might once again join hands in the upcoming legislative assembly elections.

On the first day of the monsoon session, Thackeray was welcomed by BJP leader and Higher and Technical Education Minister Chandrakant Patil, who met with Thackeray and Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Ambadas Danve.
