This year, both BJP and Shiv Sena are contesting as allies in the upcoming Maharastra assembly election which was confirmed after a formal announcement by senior state BJP minister Chandrakant Patil and Sena senior leader Subhash Desai on September 30. Both parties are trying hard to wipe out Congress from the state. The 288-member assembly seat in Maharastra is distributed among the allies by BJP taking the major share of 164 seats whereas Shiv Sena settling down with 124.

Maharastra will go to polls on October 21 and the results will be declared just after three days, that is on October 24.
