Shiv Sena could be looking to expand into BJP stronghold Uttar Pradesh

Amid rumors that BJP may contest upcoming Loksabha elections in Maharashtra alone. Their NDA partners, Shiv Sena could be planning to expand into BJP Stronghold, Uttar Pradesh.

A day ahead of Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray’s 58th birthday, the party’s leader Milind Narvekar has put up hoardings across Mumbai with the call of ‘Chalo Varanasi, Chalo Ayodhya’.
The hoardings were put up after Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday expressed a desire to go to Varanasi and Ayodhya.

Talking about the same, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut told ANI: “Uddhav Thackeray said last night that he will visit Ayodhya, address rally and later visit Varanasi. He will participate in Ganga Aarti and offer prayers at Kashi Vishwanath Temple. It’s a small event.”

The hoardings put up by the party workers also read a very suggestive two liner, “Sau sunar ki ek lohar ki.” Uddhav is son of Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray.
