Will fight Bihar polls on agenda of ‘development, hindutva’: Shiv Sena

Patna, Sept. 20 Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Sunday said that his party would fight the upcoming Bihar Assembly polls on the agenda of development and hindutva.

“We have not come here to fight for mere two to four seats. We are fighting the elections on our strength in entire Bihar. Our agenda for the polls will be development as well as Hindutva,” Raut told the media here.

On All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi’s decision to contest the polls, Raut said, “If the poison of Owaisi spreads in this country then only more countries like Pakistan will be formed. The Shiv Sena has the strength to fight against such Owaisi.”
