"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.
