With Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah’s announcement to include Maharashtra Swabhiman Paksha (MSP) chief  Narayan Rane in their manifesto committee, the pre-poll alliance between Shiv Sena and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) seems to have fallen apart. 

The differences between Rane and Shiv Sena are not unknown in the political circle. Earlier, Shiv Sena opposed the decision to include Rane in the cabinet. Rane was once one of the most important leaders of Shiv Sena and was close to Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray. 

Rane became Maharashtra Chief Minister in the year 1999 and joined Congress in the year 2005. Earlier in 2017, Rane formed his own political party called 'Maharashtra Swabhiman Paksha' (MSP). 

While speaking at Latur, BJP President Amit Shah on Sunday hinted that the alliance with Shiv Sena is unlikely ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha and Maharashtra assembly elections. Shah informed the booth-level workers to not bother about the alliance and asked to remain prepared.

The list of members for BJP’s manifesto committee was announced on Sunday. In the 20 member list, Narayan Rane was added along with Union Minister Piyush Goyal. 

However, Shiv Sena has already declared to contest the upcoming elections alone. Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut clarified that they have already passed a resolution in the party’s national executive meet to fight the elections solo.
