Uddhav Thackeray said that there was no harm in anyone expecting something. “But we have finalised seat sharing on the criteria and with an aim to win the seats."

Nana Patole of the Congress said the party is working to end the "dictatorial regime". “So, we have shown big hearts and given up the claim on disputed seats,” he said.

“The Congress is a national party. It has made significant contributions to the independence struggle of the country. The party is focused on removing the dictatorship regime. We have resolved the issue. Our party workers should accept the decision showing a big heart,” Nana Patole said.

The Congress leader said the party workers would strive to get the MVA candidates elected. “Votes of all three parties will also be transferred to each other as we have the original Shiv Sena and NCP with us,” claimed Nana Patole, who was also present at the press conference.

“For us, saving the Constitution and democracy are more important,”
he added.

Uddhav Thackeray said the alliance wanted Prakash Ambedkar to be on its side. “Even if he speaks against us, we will not utter a single word against him as we respect him,” said the former Maharashtra chief minister said..

Uddhav Thackeray alleged that the BJP is using government machinery to harass the Opposition and accommodate all the corrupt leaders in the BJP.

“BJP is an extortionist party which used power to collect funds through election bonds. Narendra Modi and his party wanted to shift the Shiv Sena to Gujarat but I prevented it. Yesterday's speech was not by the prime minister but by the leader of the Bhrashta Janata Party, which is an extortionist,” he claimed.

Uddhav Thackeray described to chief minister Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena as "Vasuli Sena".

“The PM is an institution and I have seen many prime ministers in the past. But except Narendra Modi, no one has brought this much disgrace to this position,” said Sharad Pawar.
