Will contest 2019 Lok Sabha Elections without an alliance: Shiv Sena

A few days ago, Bharatiya Janata Party’s President Amit Shah paid a visit to Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray, promoting Sampark for Samarthan and to meet agitated Thackeray post-Palghar bypolls, where the latter’s party lost its seat. There was a discussion in political circles, that post this meet, SS will calm down. However, SS cleared their stand through their mouthpiece Saamna.

On the occasion of Shiv Sena's 52nd Foundation Day, which falls on June 19, Shiv Sena announced that it would contest 2019 elections on their own and will come in power as well. Taking a dig at their ally party (BJP), SS wrote in their mouthpiece - Saamna - that it would not let the latter backstab them in 2019, the way they did in 2014.

Further, the party blamed BJP of colluding Mumbai by changing names of various areas. SS took a dig at them asking them to change their father’s name and then change the name of the area.
