Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday alleged the BJP was trying to "upstage" his party on its home-turf, violating an understanding that underpinned the saffron alliance for over two decades. He reiterated his party would fight all future elections alone.

Addressing a farmers' rally at Paithan in Aurangabad district of central Maharashtra, Thackeray said, "The understanding in the alliance for the last 25 years was that the BJP will lead the country and we will deal with Maharashtra. Also, we didn't want a division of Hindu votes. "We always helped them. Now they (the BJP) are trying to upstage us in our own house. What should we do?"

After his announcement last month that the Sena will contest the next Assembly as well as Lok Sabha polls alone, Thackeray said there was a debate now as to who would be the loser from the decision, his party or the BJP. "Election results will show who will win or lose. The Sena will fight alone and win," he said.
