    The Lok Sabha passed the Bill, which seeks to provide Indian citizenship to non-Muslim refugees coming from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan after facing religious persecution there, a little past midnight on Monday after a heated debate that lasted over seven hours.

    In an editorial in the party mouthpiece 'Saamana', the Sena also raised the timing of the bill saying, "There is no dearth of problems in India now but still we are inviting new ones such as CAB. It looks like the Centre has made an invisible partition of Hindus and Muslims over the bill".

Before meeting Pankaja, Khadse also met former Vinod Tawde.

    Thackeray heard the entire proposals of the 34 decisions in a four-hour meeting but did not order a stay, people aware of the development said. “We took a review of the last Cabinet decisions (and) what is the current situation,” said minister Eknath Shinde of Shiv Sena. “We discussed the obstacles involved in implementing the decisions.”

    The decision was taken at a meeting of the Uddhav Thackeray-led state Cabinet on Wednesday. Apart from a sugar mill owned by former state minister Pankaja Munde, another cooperative of Vinay Kore, leader of the Jansurajya Shakti Party which is an ally of the BJP, was also given the loan guarantee.
