Ahead of the assembly elections in Maharashtra, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said on Monday that his party was undergoing talks with Shiv Sena regarding seat-sharing.

He further added that a decision for the same will be taken soon.

Meanwhile, several reports speculate that Shiv Sena was thinking on contesting the elections all alone, without the alliance partner BJP.

Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray has reportedly asked his partymen to remain prepared to contest the upcoming assembly election without an alliance with the BJP, a report stated.

The two parties are under tussle over the number of seats for the polls.

Days before, sharing a stage with PM Modi, Thackeray had said that the alliance between BJP and Shiv Sena for the assembly election was "inevitable".
