Prepare to fight Lok Sabha polls alone if needed: Amit Shah to Maharashtra MPs

Mumbai: BJP president Amit Shah has reportedly asked the
party’s Maharashtra MPs to be prepared to contest the ensuing elections alone
in the state. Shah gave this message at a meeting with Maharashtra BJP MPs in
Delhi Wednesday, said an MP who was present. “Shah asked us to prepare for
the possibility of contesting elections alone in the state if needed,” the
MP said. “The BJP president told us that efforts are on to have an alliance
with the Sena but if that did not materialise, we should be prepared to fight
the polls alone,” he said.

BJP is in
alliance with the Shiv Sena in Maharashtra and at the Centre. The Sena has been
critical of BJP and its leaders have spoken of contesting the Lok Sabha
elections alone. Targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Shiv Sena on
Thursday wondered when would the Ram temple be constructed in Ayodhya if not
during the tenure of the BJP-led government. Shiv Sena has also backed the
opposition’s demand for a JPC probe in the Rafale fighter aircraft purchase
deal.

“Shah
said that if need be, we should be prepared to contest all 48 Lok Sabha seats
in Maharashtra,” the MP said. A senior Maharashtra BJP leader told PTI
that Shah was “very clear” in telling the party MPs from the state to
“be prepared for going it alone” in case no tie-up happens with the
Shiv Sena.
