The Shiv Sena-BJP alliance on Monday launched its campaign for the October 13 Maharashtra assembly elections with Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray claiming there was a wave in favour of the combine.
"There is a strong wave all over the state in favour of Shiv Sena-BJP and this inefficient Congress-NCP state government will have to go," Uddhav said addressing a public rally in suburban Vikhroli tonight.
Referring to the delay in formalisation of Congress-NCP alliance, Uddhav said "Let there be alliance or no alliance... whatever they do we are going to win".
On the rebellions that have plagued the Sena after the party declared its list of 126 candidates, Uddhav said, "there are a lot of dedicated and sincere workers but at the same time there are also a few opportunistic elements who only eye elections".
BJP general secretary Gopinath Munde alleged the state government has failed on all fronts and people of Maharashtra were facing problems like drought, load-shedding and inflation.
