Maharashtra BJP chief Raosaheb Danve stated that the Shiv Sena would remain with the BJP even though its president Uddhav Thackeray announced that the party will fight in the upcoming Lok Sabha and state assembly polls alone.
Danve stated, “We were in an alliance for 25 years. Barring the last election we have always been together.”
He informed that the BJP would celebrate its foundation day on April 6 in presence of its president Amit Shah with a rally that would be attended by around three lakh party workers.
He stated, “We want to make the 39th foundation day a grand event. We celebrate it every year so it is not right to say that we are sounding a poll bugle.”
Danve further elaborated that, “It has been proven that both governments of the NDA, under Atal Bihari Vajpayee and the current one under Narendra Modi, are capable of holding on to its allies. We are trying to keep our allies with us.”
