Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray’s home ‘Matoshree’ won’t be on NDA’s Presidential poll nominee Droupadi Murmu’s itinerary during her visit to Mumbai on Thursday, July 14.

The BJP has asserted that Murmu won’t visit Matoshree despite Uddhav Thackeray backing her candidature, going against the choice of his allies — the Congress and the NCP — in the Maha Vikas Aghadi. The two parties had supported the nomination of former Union minister Yashwant Sinha for the topmost post of the country.
