He also said the Shiv Sena”s election symbol for Bihar polls will be a “man blowing tura” (trumpet). The Election Commission had earlier disallowed the Shiv Sena from using its party symbol ”bow and arrow” in the Bihar Assembly polls over similarity with the ”arrow” symbol of the JD(U).

Asked about the schedule of Maharashtra Chief Minister and Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray for campaigning in Bihar, Desai said the details would be provided by the party and the CM himself.

The Shiv Sena on Thursday released a list of 22 leaders who will campaign in Bihar. Besides Uddhav Thackeray, his son and Maharashtra tourism minister Aaditya Thackeray also figures in the list of campaigners.
