Shiv Sena won't ally with BJP for 2019 General and Assembly polls

Eleven villages are protesting against proposed green refinery in Nanar Ratnagiri

It will now fight the 2019 Maharashtra assembly polls and Lok Sabha elections on its own. The national executive committee and deputy leaders were elected from among 180 members of the national executive. Further hitting out at PM Modi, Uddhav Thackeray said, "PM calls himself "pant pradhan", all he does is travel overseas, he took Israeli PM to Ahmedabad, why not to Lal Chowk in Srinagar?" Adding further, he said, "Aaditya would play a major role and will have a say while discussing the strategy for the next assembly election scheduled in 2019".

"PM (Narendra Modi) calls himself "Pant Pradhan", all he does is travel overseas".

"He (Modi) took Israeli PM to Ahmedabad. Had he hoisted tricolour in Lal chowk, we would have felt sense of pride towards our PM". The party has pledged to win at least 25 seats (out of 48) in the Lok Sabha in Maharashtra and 150 seats (out of 288) in state assembly.

Mr./ Thackeray who launched in to politics by his grandfather and founder of Sena late Bal Thackeray during Sena's annual dussehra rally nine years ago is set to be party's face as it plans to expand beyond Maharashtra.


He also pointed ot that Nitin Gadkari came to Maharashtra and insulted the Navy which guards our borders here.

The announcement was made in Shiv Sena's National Executive meeting after the party passed a resolution to go solo.

The post of the "party leader" is treated as a very important seat after party chief and there are only 8 leaders in the party including Sena minister in the state Subhash Desai, Diwakar Raote, MP Sanjay Raut and while Aaditya would be one of them.

The relations between the two right-wing parties have been on a boil for a long time with the Shiv Sena from time to time giving very strong indications of ending the coalition.
