Ashish Shelar, the city BJP chief, rubbished the reports of a secret meeting between former party president Nitin Gadkari and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena president Raj Thackeray at a five-star hotel here today.

"Let me put to rest the irresponsible speculation. No secret meetings happening between BJP and MNS," Shelar said on twitter.

Some Marathi news-channels reported this morning that Gadkari and Thackeray, who are known to enjoy a good rapport, were in a secret meeting at a five-star hotel, where Shelar too was present.

Last month Gadkari attended the ground-breaking ceremony of Goda Park, a riverbank beautification project of Nashik Municipal Corporation where MNS is in power with BJP's support.
