Shiv Sena is an important player in the politics of Maharashtra. In fact, it has dominated or influenced state politics for the last several decades. The party is distinguished by the fact it has a very good presence at the grass root level in Maharashtra (and more so in Mumbai). It's networking at the most basic level has influenced and touched a lot many people, which has made the party strong and deep-rooted. Political experts opine that Sena’s respect for the national culture and its efforts to safeguard the interests of the local people have only added to its mass popularity.
Shiv Sena was founded by the late Balasaheb Thackeray, who passed away in November 2012. After his death, his son Uddhav Thackeray became the party chief. Today, Shiv Sena stands out as a formidable force in Maharashtra having influence even beyond politics. It is stated that Shiv Sena has gone places owing to its alliance with its ideological sibling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Shiv Sena has shared a long alliance with BJP, which became strained on a few occasions. Sena has been in coalition with the BJP for Lok Sabha as well as Maharashtra Assembly since 1989. The two formed a government in Maharashtra between 1995-1999. The Sena was the opposition party in the state along with the BJP from 1999 to 2014. However, 25 years old alliance of Sena and BJP was broken in 2014 Maharashtra Assembly elections over seat sharing issue and both contested elections independently. After the BJP became the largest party in the 2014 Assembly elections, Sena declared that it would play the role of opposition but, after further negotiations, agreed to join the government in Maharashtra.
On 23rd January 2018, Shiv Sena once again cut ties with the BJP and their NDA coalition ahead of the 2019 Indian general election after nearly 30 years of campaigning alongside the BJP. But in February 2019, BJP and Shiv Sena again announced alliance for the general elections as well as the 2019 Maharashtra Legislative Assembly election.
