Patna : All the political parties are set to participate in the Bihar Assembly Elections which are just a few weeks away. The elections have so far created a lot of buzz across the country. All the parties are about to announce the names of the candidates. This time Shiv Sena has also jumped into the Bihar elections.
Shiv Sena has announced to contest 50 seats in the Bihar Assembly and will also field a candidate against former Bihar Director General of Police Gupteswar Pandey, who has accused Mumbai Police and the Maharashtra government of negligence in the Sushant Singh Rajput case.
Anil Desai, Shiv Sena MP confirmed the decision in an interview on the backdrop of Bihar Assembly elections. MP Desai pointed out, “Maharashtra, Mumbai and Shiv Sena were slandered in the Sushant Singh Rajput case without any reason. People knew it had nothing to do with anyone, yet the politics of revenge were carried out. We are going to get this back by contesting Bihar elections now. We are contesting 50 seats in Bihar elections. Shiv Sena had contested the elections in Bihar in 2015, in which Shiv Sena had garnered more than two lakh votes”.
Gupteswar Pandey, Former Bihar Director General of Police has resigned from the post and joined the JDU. Anil Desai said that he will field a candidate against Gupteswar Pandey.
Gupteshwar Pandey is rumored to be contesting from the Assembly constituency on Buxar JD (U) ticket. “Everyone has seen how the DGP in the past has reacted and talked. It would be inappropriate for Pandey to make such statements while remaining in office.”
“However, our Mawla (soldier) is ready to face them. Pandey will know the strength of Maharashtra, we are fielding candidates in front of him,” added MP Anil Desai.
