BJP may have post-poll alliance with Shiv Sena in Maharashtra: Kalraj

MIRZAPUR (UP): Union minister Kalraj Misra on Wednesday claimed that BJP will emerge as the largest party in the upcoming assembly polls in Maharashtra and said there may be a post-poll alliance with Shiv Sena in the state.

The Union minister for MSME (micro, small, medium enterprises) expressed his views after paying obeisance at the famous Vindhaychal temple here.

"BJP would emerge as the largest party in Maharashtra in the coming assembly polls and form government," he said, adding that, his "party may have a post-poll alliance with the Shiv Sena after the assembly elections."

To a question, Misra said that the results of the assembly elections in Maharashtra and Haryana would be an eye-opener for all the parties.

He said in both the states, BJP would form its government defying the speculations of other political parties.

Union minister for water resources, river development and Ganga rejuvenation Uma Bharati also offered puja at the Vindhyachal temple on Wednesday.
