Shiv Sena's first list to be out by April 10

"Contesting in the Assembly elections on its Hindutva principle, the Shiv Sena supported by Shriram Sena has almost finalised its candidates for North Karnataka region, and the first list of around 80 candidates would be announced by April 10," said Shiv Sena North Karnataka unit president Kumar Hakari.

"We want to contest in all constituencies in the State, but that may not be possible as the Karnataka unit of the party was formed only in December," he said.

Speaking to media persons here on Wednesday, he stated that the Shiv Sena would win at least 10 seats. Candidates would be fielded in all seven constituencies in Dharwad district, while focus would be on water scarcity, BRTS and other issues in the district, he said.

BJP blamed

The BJP is following a pseudo Hindutva policy, and it speaks about Hindutva only when elections come. BJP governments in Goa, Tripura and other States have not banned cow slaughter. BJP also joined hands with 'anti-national' PDP in Jammu & Kashmir. Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is also not constructed, Hakari charged.

Shiv Sena Karnataka unit's stand would always be in favour of protecting land, language and water here, and there is nothing wrong if a party's units in different States have different stand on issues related to that State. Mahadayi dispute is kept alive for decades, just for politics, he added.

Eeranna Kale, Bhimshi Bengeri, and others were present.
