Chief Minister Eknath Shinde will host a dinner party for the ministers in his cabinet in Bandra west on Thursday evening.
Ministers from BJP and the newly joined Ajit Pawar-led NCP will be invited for the dinner, which is said to be aimed at ensuring better coordination between the three parties in the government.
This is the first time that Shinde is hosting a dinner for his cabinet colleagues after Ajit Pawar and his supporters from the NCP joined the Shinde Sena-BJP government.
There are 29 ministers in the cabinet, including Shinde and deputy chief ministers Ajit Pawar and Devendra Fadnavis.
“The government consists of three different parties and there is a need for better coordination between the three parties… The dinner will create a better bonding between the ministers and will sort out the issues between them, if any, during the informal event,”a source from the Shinde-led Sena said.
