Thackeray said, "We will fight elections in every state for the cause of Hindutva, I take this vow today."
"PM calls himself 'Pant Pradhan', all he does is travel abroad, he took Israeli PM to Ahmedabad, why not to Lal Chowk in Srinagar? Why couldn't he have done a roadshow in Srinagar? Had he hoisted tricolour in Lal Chowk, we would have felt a sense of pride towards our PM," he said.
On the occasion of birth anniversary of Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray, the party announced that it would fight 2019 Assembly and Lok Sabha elections alone. Sena spokesperson Sanjay Raut announced that it would fight 2019 Assembly and Lok Sabha elections alone.

Shiv Sena and BJP came together to rule Maharashtra in the mid-90s with Sena playing the dominant role in the state politics. BJP pulled out of the alliance to emerge as the single largest party in the last Assembly elections. Sena and BJP, however, cobbled an alliance after the polls to form the government with BJP bagging the CM's post. The two parties also contested the BMC elections separately.
