WITH Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) elections throwing no clear winner as BJP has won 82 seats and Shiv Sena 84, a senior BJP leader on Thursday said both the parties should join hands in Mumbai.

“Enough of bitterness. Now, it’s time to come together again,” Chandrakant Patil, minister in Devendra Fadnavis-led ministry said, indicating that the bickering allies in the State Government could come together after Thursday's fractured verdict.

“Is there any other option than the two parties coming together, given the number of seats each one has bagged? Will they (Shiv Sena) take support of Congress?” said Patil, known to have excellent rapport with the central BJP leadership.

“Instead of indulging in unscientific things, like taking Congress along, both the parties should do things which are scientific and come together to govern Mumbai,” Patil said.
