Davos: Hours after the Shiv Sena announced to contest the 2019 general elections alone, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said that the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Shiv Sena will complete its full term together in the state.
Speaking to a reporter, Fadnavis, who is in Davos to attend the World Economic Forum summit, said, “They (Shiv Sena) have been saying a lot of things. I don’t want to comment on them. As of now, we are in the government. The BJP and Shiv Sena will complete its full term together, whatever it takes. And I am sure we will get the next term as well.”
The Shiv Sena on Tuesday passed a resolution not to align with the Bharatiya Janata Party and go solo in the Lok Sabha and Maharashtra assembly polls next year.
The resolution was moved by Sena MP Sanjay Raut, who said the BJP had been demoralising the party for the last three years.
“I moved the resolution for the Shiv Sena to fight the Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabha polls on its own in 2019,” Raut said.
