"The BJP will use its political might to ensure that all its allies, including the Shiv Sena, stay with it. Now with TDP
chief and Andhra Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu also speaking about charting his own course, the challenge before the BJP is to keep the NDA (National Democratic Alliance) flock together," Chavan said.

Chavan said that the BJP's strategy for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls would be to keep its allies together and also ensure that there is no unity among the Opposition ranks.
