The Uddhav Thackeray-led party also sent a strong message to the BJP saying its successful Dussehra rally indicated that the future belonged to the Shiv Sena and that it was prepared to fight the upcoming (poll) battles alone if needed.
    
"The BJP has received Modi oxygen in the form of power. This oxygen will last till the subsidy of the popularity ends...Shiv Sena is standing firm on its thoughts, struggle and patriotism. The party has never changed its stand on the issues of Hindutva, patriotism, Maharashtra's identity and issues concerning common man's life. Our beliefs will not change at any cost," the Shiv Sena said in its mouthpiece 'Saamana'.
    
Shiv Sena has waged a war against the enemies of the country. The party does not face challenge by anybody, it said adding, peoples' support will ensure that the Shiv Sena's flag flutters over Maharashtra in the future.
    
"The future belongs only to the Shiv Sena and the Dussehra rally of the party has sent this message across to everybody. We will fight it out with whosoever is willing to join us, or else, we are fully prepared to fight it out all alone with the confidence instilled in us by the Shiv Sena chief. Nobody should dare block our path!" it said.
    
The saffron party also hit out at NCP supremo Sharad Pawar apparently over hosting Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in his home tow Baramati last week.
