In Maharashtra, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Chief Minister Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena along with other constituents of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will contest all 288 assembly and 48 Lok Sabha seats in the state. While giving this information in Nagpur on Saturday, BJP State President Chandrashekhar Bawankule said that no formal decision has been taken on the distribution of seats yet.
Bawankule’s remarks come amid reports that Shinde-led Shiv Sena is being treated unfairly in seat sharing for the upcoming elections. Bawankule said, “BJP and Shiv Sena will contest 48 Lok Sabha and 288 assembly seats in alliance with other NDA constituents.” Assembly elections are to be held in Maharashtra in October 2024.
BJP state president said that BJP and Shiv Sena have started preparations to win 200 seats under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and in coordination with Chief Minister Shinde and Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. Meanwhile, Maharashtra unit president of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) Jayant Patil said that the 2024 assembly elections will be BJP versus Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) and the existence of Shinde-led Shiv Sena will be in question.
