Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said, that the party had fielded Vishwanath Mahadeshwar for mayor's post and Hemangi Worlikar for deputy mayors post. "BJP will support Shiv Sena for the sake of development, and we won't compromise on transparency", the chief minister said.

Out of the 25 ZPs that saw polls, the BJP has already wrested three (Chandrapur, Wardha, and Latur), while the Shiv Sena won Ratnagiri, the NCP retained Pune and Satara, while the Congress won Sindhudurg.

And, when BJP attacks Sena in BMC, the latter will retaliate by attacking the state. All our corporators will work as soldiers of transparency in the BMC.

Reacting to the BJP's decision not to contest the Mumbai mayoral polls, senior Shiv Sena leader and Minister in the Fadnavis Cabinet Diwakar Raote said, "We are happy that the BJP will not contest the BMC mayoral polls".

"However, if they require any votes, the BJP is ready to offer support to the Shiv Sena and will always vote in favour of progress and development", he told media persons here. In last one month, the Shiv Sena and BJP had carried out a hostile campaign with Shiv Sena threatening to take out its support from Maharashtra state as well as Centre. The members include Ramnath Jha, Gautam Chaterjee and Sharad Kale.

Further, after suffering electoral setbacks in most rural bodies across Maharashtra, the Congress and the NCP were hoping to cling on to power in 12 out of the 25 zilla parishads by coming together.

But Shiv Sena has nearly approached everybody excluding BJP, the ties between the two parties went sour after BJP alleged blamed Shiv Sena for non-transparency in BMC during Sena's tenure. from there the war of words started.

Suspense has been mounting over who will be the next Mayor of Mumbai, with the BJP and Sena eyeing the prestigious post though both the parties do not have majority of their own in the just elected House. But, wherever there is a mistake especially over issues of transparency, we will ensure that Sena will have to change their decision, " said finance minister Sudhir Mungantiwar. Instead, the party will be supporting the Sena, a party they had said was corrupt.

The mayoral contest is now as good as over, with Sena mayor all set to be appointed on March 8. "People want us to deliver on the agenda of transparency", he said.
