Panaji: Shiv Sena Member of Parliament Sanjay Raut on Wednesday arrived in Goa to oversee party’s preparedness for upcoming legislative assembly election.
Raut was accorded warm welcome at Dabolim Airport by Sena leaders led by local party unit chief Jitesh Kamat.
Talking to reporters, Raut said that Goa and Maharashtra have an emotional relation. “The way Sena is ruling Maharashtra, it will rule Goa,” he stated.
The MP said that Sena will contest on 22 seats in the upcoming Assembly election.
Shiv Sena has no member in the legislative assembly of Goa. The party had fought last election in alliance with other political outfits like MGP but had failed to open the account.
