Mumbai: The Shiv Sena on Monday remained non-committal on whether or not it will support the BJPs nominee for the presidential election, Ram Nath Kovind. 

Sena MP Sanjay Raut told the media that BJP president Amit Shah called up Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray after announcing the candidature of the Bihar Governor for the July 17 election. "Shah informed him (Thackeray) about the BJP choice and sought the Sena's support," Raut said. 

Thackeray maintained his earlier stance and said he would call a meeting of the Sena to discuss the issue before taking a final decision.
