The MVA in Maharashtra comprises Shiv Sena, NCP and the Congress. The three parties forged an alliance post-Assembly elections in 2019 to keep the BJP away from power. The Shiv Sena, which had contested the Assembly election together with the BJP, decided to end the alliance after the saffron party refused to accept the demand for CM's chair.

Patole is a senior leader in the state and hails from the Vidarbha region of the state. His statement is certain to raise eyebrows within the alliance, although the Sena and NCP on many occasions have denied any rift.

This is the second such statement made by a senior party leader in the recent times. Earlier, Mumbai Congress chief Ashok alias Bhai Jagtap had announced that his party will contest the BMC elections in 2022 solo.
