BJP-Shiv Sena likely to finalize seat distribution on September 24

Updated 23 Sep 2019 07:21 PM

Union Minister Ramdas Athawale on Sunday said he is hoping to get 10 seats for Republican Party of India (RPI) in the BJP-led alliance for Maharashtra Assembly elections.
The RPI chief said Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadanvis and state BJP president Chandrakant Patil have asked him to wait for the announcement of the BJP-Shiv Sena seat-sharing deal.
"Shiv Sena and BJP will finalise their seat-sharing plan for the Maharashtra polls today. They will contest 270 seats. Since 18 seats will be given to other allies, we have demanded 10 seats for RPI. We have had discussions with Fadanvis and Chandrakant Patil. They have asked me to wait for a final settlement between Shiv Sena and BJP," Athawale said at a press conference here.
He, however, said his party may be given one-two seats less than what he has demanded.
