“Shiv Sena will contest the upcoming Gujarat Assembly election. We are making preparations in this regard,” party spokesperson Sanjay Raut told reporters here.
Raut, however, did not say how many of the 182 Assembly seats the party will contest in Gujarat.
The announcement comes a day after Sena patriarch Bal Thackeray said senior BJP leader Sushma Swaraj was a “great choice” for the PM’s post.
Sena is an ally of BJP in Maharashtra and also at the national level, where it is part of the NDA.
