Mumbai (Maharashtra) India: Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said on Thursday that the BJP and Shiv Sena-led Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena team would win the forthcoming Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) elections alongside our alliance partners in the Maharashtra-Karnataka border dispute, which appeared to be politically motivated by some fringe groups.I have spoken to the Karnataka CM and police chief and have also briefed the Union Home Minister on the situation, he said.Fadnavis said that it was the former Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government that took the decision to vest Karnataka-based banks with the authority to open government salary accounts.They should have investigated the facts before bringing charges against our government.

Former Maharashtra Prime Minister Uddhav Thackeray led by his party allowed the use of private sector banks for accessing salaries and other government services in January 2021.For the forthcoming Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) polls, Union Home Minister Amit Shah held a meeting in Mumbai in September and set a target of 150 seats.According to sources, the Union Home Minister expressed confidence in the BJP in winning the high-stakes civic elections.According to Shah, the BJP and the real Shiv Sena should aim to gain at least 150 seats in the BMC polls.

He also confessed that people are with the BJP rather than the Uddhav party.Shah met with BJP MPs, MLAs, MLCs, and corporators to discuss the forthcoming BMC elections.BJP claimed 82 out of the 227 seats in the BMC and eight out of the ten major municipalities, while the Shivsena, who had 84 seats, came marginally behind.None of the parties could reach the majority level of 114.The Sena had left out an alliance with BJP and contested the 2017 BMC elections alone.
