The result of rift, which was going on for a long time between Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP ) and Shiv Sena, came out on Tuesday. Shiv Sena has declared the separation from the NDA alliance. The party has said that it will contest the 2019 elections alone. Apart from this, Shov Sena has also declared that they will contest the assembly alone. This decision will have a big impact on Maharashtra politics. In addition to the Maharashtra government, the two parties in the BMC are co-ordinating the government. Shiv Sena has taken this decision at a time when youth leader and party chief Uddhav Thackeray's son Aditya Thakre has been made a member of the party's national executive. This is being seen as a step taken in the direction of handing over the legacy of Shiv Sena to the next generation.
Shiv Sena has taken this decision in its executive meeting. However, considering the long-standing talk, this decision will be considered as normal.
“The BJP allied with the Sena in the name of Hindutva and the Sena kept patience for Hindutva. However, the BJP in the last three years has been demoralising the Sena and using power to do so,” Sena leader Sanjay Raut said at the meeting.
