BJP ally Shiv Sena to go solo in state

The Shiv Sena would contest around 60 seats against its alliance partner, the BJP, in the next month's Assembly polls in Karnataka, party MP Sanjay Raut said on Sunday, reports PTI from Mumbai.

"Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray had already announced that our party is going to contest elections independently and hence, we have decided to go solo in Karnataka as well. We will contest around 50-60 seats but will support the Maharashtra Ekikaran Samiti (MES), which represents the Marathi people living in disputed areas between Maharashtra and Karnataka," he told reporters.
