After discussions with Party Chief Shri Uddhav Thackeray, Shivsena has decided to contest the West Bengal Assembly Elections. We are reaching Kolkata soon...!! Jai Hind."

Reacting to this decision, BJP leader Nilesh Rane said that Shiv Sena and Sanjay Raut’s habit of going outside and self-mocking will not go away.

In this regard, Nilesh Rane tweeted that in Bihar Election NOTA got 1.68 per cent votes, while Shiv Sena got 0.05 per cent votes. In Goa Election, three candidates of Shiv Sena won out of 40. In Maharashtra, Shiv Sena got 16 per cent votes in 2019.

Shiv Sena has now decided to contest elections in West Bengal even though it is not getting the benefit of contesting elections outside Maharashtra. If the Shiv Sena takes the lead against the BJP and contests the elections in West Bengal, it could benefit Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress. Therefore, it is being speculated that the Shiv Sena will get help from the troubled Trinamool Congress.

In 2020, Shiv Sena had contested assembly elections in Bihar. Shiv Sena had fielded a total of 22 candidates in this election. However, all candidates were defeated. Moreover, deposits of all the candidates were also confiscated.
