CM Fadnavis says that BJP, Shiv Sena will contest Maharashtra Assembly Elections together
MUMBAI: On the eve of the launch of his mass outreach programme aimed at building momentum ahead of the assembly elections, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Wednesday repeated the BJP and the Shiv Sena would contest together unlike 2014.
Speaking at a function after inducting joining Congress MLAs and the NCP into the BJP, the chief minister said that the BJP, the Sena and allied parties would like to "break the record of winning a maximum number of seats in the state polls".
On Tuesday, three MLAs of the NCP and one of the Congress resigned from the state Legislative Assembly.
They joined the BJP in the presence of the chief minister and state BJP president Chandrakant Patil on Wednesday.
Pointing out the likely discord over sharing of seats, a BJP leader said Vaibhav and Kolambkar generally contested against the opponents of Shiv Sena from their respective constituencies of Akole and Wadala.
"As they have joined the BJP, the party will most likely field them from their respective constituencies in the assembly polls. A million-dollar question is will the Shiv Sena be ready to share those seats with the BJP?" he said.

Fadnavis is embarking on a month-long 'Mahajanadesh Yatra' beginning from Amravati district in eastern Maharashtra on Thursday. The yatra will end on 31st August in Nashik in North Maharashtra.
The BJP and the Shiv Sena had contested the 2014 elections separately but joined hands later to form a BJP-led government.
