Disputes, if any, subject to jurisdiction in New Delhi

The BJP and Shiv Sena today formally announced the alliance for the Maharashtra Assembly elections. CM Devendra Fadnavis and Uddhav Thackeray announced also the seat-sharing formula at the press conference.

In this election, BJP will contest 150 and Shiv Sena 124 seats.

Fadnavis as well as Thackeray gave a strong message to the rebels through the media and expressed confidence of returning to power with a majority in the Assembly. On the occasion, the chief minister emphasised the commonality in the ideologies of the two parties and said that the thread of Hindutva united the two parties.

Expressing confidence of returning to power, the chief minister said, “The BJP and Shiv Sena parties are in the fray together. We will contest the elections together. We will get the full support of the people. Public support will be available just like it was during the Lok Sabha poll. We have given an opportunity to all classes of people. They will make us win this election with an overwhelming majority. We will contest on the issue of development. ‘Development of Maharashtra’ is our goal.”

Fadnavis: BJP-Shiv Sena brothers, neither elder

The Shiv Sena, which for a long time played the big brother in Maharashtra, no longer holds that status in the alliance. However, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray himself insisted on equality, saying, “At first there were questions about the alliance. But BJP and Shiv Sena are brothers. There is nothing like elder and younger brother in it. We have to work together for the development and betterment of Maharashtra.”

Under the alliance, the two parties have left 14 seats for the allies in the 288 seats in the Assembly elections to be held on 21 October.

‘Rebels better behave, or there is no place for them in party or alliance’

Fadnavis warned the rebels in a strict tone. In a brief message, he said, “Many people questioned whether there would be an. Everyone has entered into an agreement for this alliance. In the coming days, all rebel candidates will be asked to withdraw their names. This work will be done with the rebel candidates of all the parties of the grand alliance. If they do not agree then they will not get any place in any of the parties in the alliance.”

However, the chief minister expressed confidence that in two days, most of the rebels will be persuaded to return ‘home’.

CM appeals for big win for Aditya

This is the first time a member from the Thackeray family is directly contesting in an election. Fadnavis appealed for the victory of Aaditya Thackeray. He said, “Aaditya Thackeray is in the fray this time. I appeal to the people to win Aaditya with the most votes. He will win and will sit in the assembly simultaneously.”

Aaditya is contesting from Worli seat. This will be the first time that a member of the Thackeray family will directly contest the elections. From Balasaheb Thackeray to Uddhav Thackeray and MNS chief Raj Thackeray have so far stayed away from directly contesting elections.

On the question of Aaditya becoming chief minister, Uddhav said, ‘The first step in politics does not mean that you have to become the chief minister. He is entering politics now. This is their beginning.
