The meeting was held at Maharashtra BJP president Chandrakant Patils residence, which was attended by party leader and Finance Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar and Sena leader Subhash Desai.
Asked about the recently inducted leaders from the Congress and NCP, the BJP leader said, "Those seats will be considered as that of the respective party in which the sitting MLA has joined.
"Most of the sitting MLAs will get ticket from their new political home. Such an arrangement has been worked out," he said. Smaller parties like the RPI (A) and the Rashtriya Samaj Paksh (RSP) are part of the BJP-Sena alliance in the state.
