Mumbai: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) supremo Sharad Pawar will reportedly meet executive president of Shiv Sena Uddhav Thackeray in Mumbai's Lilavati Hospital on Saturday.
Uddhav underwent an angioplasty on Friday.
Pawar's visit assumes significance specially in the wake of the recent conflicts between the NCP and the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA).
After supposedly resigning from the UPA cabinet in New Delhi, Pawar reportedly threatened to exit the UPA in governance but remain with it by offering outside support.
In a letter the the Prime Minister, which was made available to some media, Pawar said he wants to build his small party for the future.
"We are a small party. So it doesn't confer stature or respectability. So we need to build up our party for the future. Therefore we need to devote more time to build up our party," the letter of Pawar to the PM said as quoted in some media.
He also wrote: "We have been a strong and progressive ally of the UPA and we shall continue to be in alliance."
