Congress surges ahead of key rival BJP in Nanded municipal polls

Congress gets a lead in Nanded civic polls; BJP wins in Bhandup and Pune

The election was held on Wednesday and saw an aggressive campaign by both the BJP and the Shiv Sena.

The BJP today won the BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) bypoll from Bhandup.

Counting of votes in this ward will be done twice - through EVMs as well as VVPAT machines, the election commission officials said. Around 60% of the registered voters cast their votes on Wednesday. Trends and results are expected to be available in few hours time. The BJP and the Shiv Sena, partners in the central government and in Maharashtra, contested the civic polls separately, with the bitter campaign highlighting their strained ties since the BJP's rise as the state's number 1 party after national and assembly elections in 2014.Though the two parties had nearly the same number of seats, the BJP said it would not challenge the Sena for the post of Mayor.The BJP's goodwill gesture after the BMC elections was seen also as an acknowledgment of the role the Shiv Sena plays in supporting the Maharashtra government of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. The Congress seems set for a convincing victory in Nanded as the party is now leading in 44 of the 81 seats till last reports came in.

The Shiv Sena is projected to win 07-10 seats whereas the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) will end with just 2-3 seats, the exit polls said. Although a Congress stronghold for the last 15 years, this time Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis addressed a high-pitched rally in Nanded days before the polling and targeted the Congress and the Shiv Sena.
