MUMBAI: Indicating a possible reconciliation, Shiv Sena today said it will consider BJP's proposal on government formation in Maharashtra once it is made as they have "no bitterness".

"Once they (BJP) submit a proposal for a stable government in the interest of Maharashtra, Sena president Uddhav Thackeray will take a decision, whatever that may be, after considering all factors," Sena MP Anil Desai said.

"We have no bitterness. If there is a proposal, we will consider it," Desai, who was part of the failed seat-sharing talks with BJP ahead of the Assembly poll, said.

Amid reports that NCP had sent feelers to BJP for extending support, Desai said, "NCP has been rejected by the people of Maharashtra. If BJP ties up with NCP, it will be a betrayal of the people of Maharashtra."

Sena spokesperson Sanjay Raut said, "We have seen the trends. They show BJP is getting more seats, which is okay. But Sena is also doing well. I will comment on our stance after a clear picture emerges after 2 PM," Raut said.
