A throwback picture of Shiv Sena founder Balasaheb Thackeray with the BJP's LK Advani and Atal Bihai Vajpayee was tweeted today by Union Minister Giriraj Singh to indicate the long road travelled by the estranged ally in Maharashtra. The post came minutes after the Sena claimed that it would form government in Maharashtra with the Congress and Sharad Pawar's Nationalist Congress Party -- a turn of events that started with the BJP refusing to stake claim to the government yesterday.
