Congress leads in Nanded civic polls

Live Updates

Nanded is the home-turf of former Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan who led the Congress' election campaign while Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis spearheaded the BJP's poll strategy.

The Congress has taken a massive lead in the Nanded-Waghala municipal corporation elections while the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has won the Bhandup bypoll for BMC and Pune. While the ruling party seems confident of a much improved performance this time, it still remains to be seen whether the party can dent the Maharashtra Congress chief president Chavan's bastion. As far as the Sena is concerned, it is not even in the race here.

The State Election Commission of Maharashtra had placed order for 400 VVPAT machines from the Electronic Corporation of India (ECI), but the company could not provide so many machines in time, so it was made a decision to use available 70 machines on pilot basis at a single ward in Nanded polls.

The polling had recorded a turnout of 60 per cent. In the last municipal election in Nanded, the Congress had secured 41 of the 81 seats with the Shiv Sena a distant second with 14 seats.

Counting of votes in this ward will be done twice - through EVMs as well as VVPAT machines, the election commission officials said. The BJP had won only two seats while the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) won 10 and All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) won 11 seats.

The Shiv Sena is also leading on 1 seat now.

Congress now leading on 20 seats, while BJP on 2.

Congress that is now ruling the civic body is seeking to retain it while the BJP, that has been thumping all other parties in most local body polls is seeking to seize power in Nanded.

This time, 578 candidates are contesting the election to Nanded Municipal Corporation.
