Mumbai: Leaders of the Shiv Sena and the BJP on Saturday exuded the confidence of winning a second consecutive term in Maharashtra, hours after the Election Commission of India (ECI) announced the poll schedule.

Maharashtra will go for a single-phase election on October 21. Counting of votes will be taken up on October 24.

State BJP chief Chandrakant Patil said given the overwhelming response to the ‘Mahajanadesh Yatra’ of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, the BJP alliance is likely to get more than 220 seats.

“The ‘Yuti’ (alliance) will burst crackers a day before Diwali (due later in October). Our preparations are complete,” Sena spokesman Sanjay Raut told reporters here.

Senior BJP leader Vinod Tawde said a BJP-led alliance government under Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis will emerge victorious once again.

“In the next one month, we will ensure the report card of our development work of the last five years reaches the people as against the erstwhile 15-year rule of the Congress-NCP combine. That’s what we intend to do in the next five years,” said the School Education Minister.

When asked whether the seat-sharing pact between the Sena and the BJP will be announced on Sunday by Union Home Minister and party chief Amit Shah during his visit here, Patil said, “I have no idea”.

He said the BJP will fight the polls under Fadnavis’ leadership, adding that alliance talks between Thackeray and Fadnavis were on and an announcement will be made soon.

Various reports about contours of the seat-sharing formula are doing rounds.

Sena president Uddhav Thackeray on Friday said the “formula” was decided during the Lok Sabha elections, where the two parties had a pre-poll alliance.

The BJP had won the maximum 122 seats and Sena 63 seats out of the total 288 constituencies in the 2014 assembly polls, which they contested separately.
