The Diwali Milan get together hosted by PM is significant as it comes ahead of government formation in Maharashtra, amid speculation of a possible BJP-Shiv Sena tie-up.

Union Minister Anant Geete said all Shiv Sena MPs will be present at PM's tea party but clarified that party supremo Uddhav Thackeray will not attend as the get together was only meant for NDA MPs.

Some of NDA allies will not be attending the Diwali Milan as they do not have a single leader elected as MP. These include BJP's Tamil Nadu allies MDMK and DMDK.
