Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray on Tuesday said Maharashtra will see the exit of Congress-NCP government and ushering in of the Shiv Sena-BJP alliance after the Assembly elections.

"Shivshahi (Sena-BJP government) will come to power in the state," 83-year-old Thackeray told reporters after exercising his franchise at a polling booth near 'Matoshree', his residence in suburban Bandra, this morning.

Thackeray's son Uddhav, who manages the party affairs, Uddhav's wife Rashmi and son Aditya accompanied the Sena chief
to the polling booth.

Thackeray's estranged nephew and MNS chief Raj Thackeray cast his vote at a polling booth at Balmohan
Vidyamandir in central Mumbai's Dadar area.

Asked about Congress candidate from Bandra, Jananrdan Chandurkar allegedly distributed money to lure voters, Raj
claimed, "That is what they (Congress) have been doing so far.

This time, the frequency of money distribution) is more."

On Bal Thackeray not voting in Lok Sabha polls but coming out to vote this time around, Raj said, "It is a good
thing".
