Mumbai: The Shiv Sena, coming down hard against its long-term ally, said it will not fight elections with the BJP irrespective of any results in the country, again highlighting the increasing rift between the two parties in the National Democratic Alliance (NDA). Sanjay Raut, Editor of Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamana and the national spokesperson of the party, made the comments while talking to a television channel.

Raut said their party congratulates the BJP on its Karnataka victory. “We think that any party which has won democratically is worthy of congratulations. We congratulate the BJP on its victory in Karnataka,” said Raut. 

“The people of Karnataka have taken this decision after experiencing a Congress government earlier,” said Raut, adding, “The people of Karnataka must have been influenced by the projection of PM Modi. Now that they have chosen to experiment, let’s see how their experiment fares.”

“But Maharashtra has seen a term of the BJP government. It knows what good has come of it. We have seen that the people have got nothing from the BJP government and it has failed the people,” Raut claimed, adding, “We are sure that the people of Maharashtra will not vote again for either Modi or BJP. We are firm on our decision to fight on our own and we will not change it irrespective of any election results all over the country.”
