Pranab Mukherjee to meet Thackeray

He will be accompanied by Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar and other top state Congress leaders, besides Sena leaders.

Mukherjee will be here Friday on a daylong visit to campaign for his candidature for the country's top post.

He will also meet leaders of all state political parties supporting him and express his gratitude at a function at Nariman Point in south Mumbai in the evening.

The Shiv Sena had announced its support to Mukherjee's candidature in the 'national interest', a decision that upset its state alliance partner Bharatiya Janata Party and other National Democratic Alliance members.

Mukherjee had earlier phoned Sena chief to thank him for the Shiv Sena's support.
