“From time to time, they are raising the issue of mid-term elections... Instead of resorting to such tactics, they should hold mid-term elections. The Sena will fight on its own and is geared up for it,” he said.

SHIV Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Saturday “dared” the state government to hold mid-term elections, claiming that the Sena was fully prepared for it.

“From time to time, they are raising the issue of mid-term elections… Instead of resorting to such tactics, they should hold mid-term elections. The Sena will fight on its own and is geared up for it,” he said. Raut was speaking to the media on Saturday on the sidelines of a meeting with leaders and office-bearers of Sena’s Pimpri-Chinchwad unit.

Pointing out “deep differences” between the two parties, Raut said, “The BJP government in Maharashtra is not working in the interest of the people. I had said that there would be an earthquake if the government does not waive farm loans. Four days later, the government announced a loan waiver. But the farmers are still not benefiting from it. The loan waiver is stuck in red tape. Sena ministers are pursuing the issue with the government.”
