BJP-Shinde camp to jointly contest 288 seats, win 200; no decision yet on seat-sharing: Bawankule

Nagpur: The Bharatiya Janta Party and the Shiv Sena led by Chief Minister Eknath Shinde will contest all 288 Assembly and 48 Lok Sabha seats in Maharashtra in alliance with other NDA constituents, BJP state president Chandrashekhar Bawankule said on Saturday.

He said no formal decision had been taken so far on sharing of the seats.
“The BJP and the Shiv Sena will contest 48 Lok Sabha seats and 288 Vidhan Sabha seats in alliance with other constituents of the NDA,” Bawankule said.

The Assembly elections are due in Maharashtra in October 2024.
He said BJP and Shiv Sena have started preparations to win 200 seats under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and in coordination between CM Shinde and Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.

Queried whether BJP will contest 240 seats and Shiv Sena 48 (of 288), Bawankule said, “There was a meeting related to this and there will be meetings in future”.

“A clip was circulated by twisting it. BJPShiv Sena alliance will contest 288 seats and win 200. No (seat-sharing) formula has been decided so far. Central and state leadership will decide on it,” he said in response to reports.
