If BJP wishes to merge these three countries and make a single country, we will welcome it definitely,’ Malik told ANI, when asked comment on former chief minister and BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis’s remark on Karachi.

Malik also said that NCP wanted to contest Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation elections along with Shiv Sena and Congress which are part of Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra, report NDTV.

‘It is still 15 months left for the BMC election. Every party has the right to work for their party, and every party is doing so. We are also strengthening our party. We would want that those who are running the government all three parties should contest polls together,’ he said.

The cabinet minister also ruled out any possibility of lockdown in Maharashtra saying that there is no need for it.
