The Shiv Sena it seems has begun to put pressure on their alliance partner in Maharashtra the BJP ahead of the forthcoming Maharashtra assembly polls.
Though the Sena and BJP are yet to announce the number of seats they would be contesting ,Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut has said that if his party did not get half seats to contest in the upcoming Maharashtra polls then the alliance between the two parties could break.
“BJP will have to respect the fifty-fifty formulae that was decided in presence of Amit Shah and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. I am not talking of breaking alliance but what Diwakar Raote has said is not wrong,” said Sanjay Raut.
Diwakar Raote, senior Shiv Sena leader and Minister in Maharashtra government had on Wednesday said that if not given equal number of seats by the BJP, the pre-poll alliance between the two parties could break.
