In Maharashtra, INDIA bloc parties have formed the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) alliance, comprising the Shiv Sena (UBT), the Congress party and the Nationalist Congress Party (SP). As per the seat-sharing agreement among the three MVA parties, the Shiv Sena (UBT) is contesting 21 seats, Congress 17 and NCP (SP) 10.

On Saturday, NCP (SP) chief Sharad Pawar hit out at PM Narendra Modi, calling him "Prime Minister of BJP".

“I was listening to Narendra Modi’s speech before I came here (Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar). The prime minister belongs to the entire country. If we listen to Modi’s speeches, it seems he is the prime minister of BJP and not the country,” said Pawar.

Meanwhile, voting took place on Saturday in five Lok Sabha constituencies of Maharashtra, in the first phase of the polls. Maharashtra has a total of 48 Lok Sabha constituencies, the highest after Uttar Pradesh (80). Voting in the remaining seats will be held in subsequent phases of the Lok Sabha election 2024.
