On the issue of stone-pelting in Darjeeling and demand for Gorkhaland, the editorial said: "One may have political differences with (West Bengal Chief Minister) Mamata Banerjee but nobody should try to take political advantage of the situation there".

Shah met Thackeray on the last day of his three-day visit to the city at the latter's residence, Matoshree in Bandra (East).

"Some people had said that they will withdraw support and bring down the government".

The Sena chief said he offered prayers on Thursday at the Gajanan Maharaj Temple in Pune to give strength to the government to implement its promise of farm loans waiver.
