Sanjay Raut, a Shiv Sena MP, stated on Saturday that the Election Commission's campaigning constraints for the upcoming Assembly elections in five states, imposed in light of COVID-19, should be followed consistently and that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should lead by example. "During the West Bengal elections, we observed how several parties and leaders, particularly the BJP and the Prime Minister, campaigned during the peak of the second wave of coronavirus. This time, Prime Minister should lead by example." According to Rajya Sabha member Raut.

He stated that the ruling BJP and the newcomer Trinamool Congress were fighting the Goa polls by "breaking the Congress," referring to the grand old party's large-scale defections in recent months and weeks. When Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant questioned Raut's frequent visits to the coastal state, stating the Sena lacks "even a local sarpanch," Raut countered that the BJP did not have a sarpanch there until recently. According to him, the BJP gained traction in Goa by splintering the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP). According to the Sena leader, the people of Goa want to teach the ruling party a lesson, but the opposition's lack of unity will give the ruling party an "open field."
