Till date, despite being out of electoral politics, the Thackeray family have gained a major influence over the political scenario in Maharashtra. This year too, the Thackeray-led political party will be contesting elections with ally Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). 

Earlier this week, senior BJP leader Chandrakant Patil had suggested that out of the total 288 Vidhan Sabha seats, BJP and Shiv Sena should share 135 seats each and provide 18 seats to other parties.
