Hours before Devendra Fadnavis Government faces trust vote, the Shiv Sena today said it will vote against it in the Maharashtra Assembly.

“Shiv Sena has decided to sit in Opposition. We will vote against the trust vote,” senior Sena leader Ramdas Kadam told reporters at Vidhan Bhawan here.

“We have lost faith in them (BJP),” Kadam said.

After Sena President Uddhav Thackeray addressed a meeting of party legislators here last night, Sena sources had said he will announce the party’s stand on trust vote today.

Meanwhile, the BJP said the decision of Sena, with which it had an alliance for 25 years in Maharashtra, was not in the state’s interest.

“The Sena’s decision is against the interests of Maharashtra,” state finance minister Sudhir Mungantiwar said.
