Mumbai : Giving a clear cut message to its alliance partners Shiv Sena, in its convention on Wednesday, indicated that the chief minister’s post will go to the party having the maximum numbers in the Assembly. The Sena has decided to fight forthcoming Assembly polls on the plank of Marathi pride and Hindutva besides the development of Maharashtra.

The Senamen were appealed to unfurl the saffron flag on the Maharashtra Assembly as was the dream of Late Balasaheb Thackeray. Shiv Sena has started preparations for the assembly elections after registering a thumping victory in recently held Lok Sabha elections. It has chalked out a development plan for urban as well as rural areas. The party has vowed to spread its wings with the priorities to be given to traffic problems in Mumbai, increasing pollution, stalled track doubling of the Konkan Railway, four laning of the Mumbai-Goa highway, stalled irrigation projects in the state, conservation of forts etc.

The Sena activists have also resolved to bring forth the alleged corruption of the Congress-NCP led Maharashtra government. Sena leaders have planned to put up candidates in those constituencies where the party had no candidate besides organising separate meetings at divisional places.
