Raj, who lives in Dadar, drove to Matoshree, Uddhav's residence in suburban Bandra. No aides were present at the meeting, Sena sources said.
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) polls are crucial for the two cousins who regularly take pot-shots at each other.

Shiv Sena plays the second fiddle to ally BJP in the state ministry and is trying hard to retain its rule over the BMC where BJP plays the second fiddle. Uddhav, who turned 56 recently, has been handling the party affairs since 2004.

In 2005, Raj had quit Shiv Sena and formed a new political outfit, MNS, the next year, blaming Uddhav and his 'coterie' for the ills afflicting his uncle Bal Thackeray's party.

The performance of MNS drastically suffered in the last Assembly polls where only one party MLA was elected, a far cry from 13 MNS MLAs elected in the 2009 polls.

Both parties are trying to remain relevant in the state politics after BJP’s massive victory in the 2014 Assembly elections. The Shiv Sena is at loggerheads with the BJP after it ended their alliance before the state polls. The MNS is also facing a series of desertions from the party after receiving a drubbing in the elections.

In yet another twist to the family saga, Bal Thackeray’s older son Jaidev Thackeray has made a sensational claim in the Bombay High Court that Aishwarya Thackeray, the son from his former wife Smita was not his child.

Jaidev has also challenged Bal Thackeray's will which does not give him any share in the property.
