Mumbai, June 19 (IANS) Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray said a decision on supporting NDA Presidential nominee Ram Nath Kovind would be taken after discussions with party leaders on Tuesday.

“We will not take any decision without discussions and announce it tomorrow (Tuesday),” Thackeray declared, addressing a rally of party workers to mark the 51st foundation day of Shiv Sena on Monday.

He added that if the next President proves to be beneficial for the country, “then make anybody. We will support”.

However, he said the party would not tolerate if the candidature is intended for ensuring provision of Dalit votes, as the Shiv Sena keeps away from vote-bank politics.
