Maharashtra Kranti Sena (MKS) on Tuesday announced that they will be contesting the state assembly elections solely on 100 seats. The state assembly elections are scheduled in mid-October this year.

While speaking to the media, MKS President Suresh Patil informed that the party has the support of nearly 60 organisations involved in the Maratha movement. MKS informed that they will contest on all 10 assembly constituency seats in Kolhapur district. 

Earlier, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Shiv Sena had promised 10 seats in the assembly elections. However, after MKS didn’t receive any response for the last eight days, they decided to contest alone on 100 assembly constituencies across Maharashtra.
