Nanded Municipal Corporation Election Results 2017: Congress takes lead

The Congress has also built strong leads in 33 seats in the NWCMC, which is now one of the last surviving bastions of the party in the state.

For the Congress, winning Nanded is a matter of prestige so much so that Ashok Chavan has parked himself in the constituency to ensure a win for the party.

The counting of votes is underway for the high stakes Nanded Municipal Corporation Election. Congress has taken early leads in the counting of votes. Nanded Municipal Corporation has 3.96 lakh registered voters of whom 60 per cent turned out to vote on Wednesday. There are 578 candidates in the fray.

The Congress party had won 41 seats in the last elections with the BJP getting just two seats. NCP is contesting on 57 seats, Shiv Sena is contesting on 76 seats (73+3), AIMIM and BSP are together contesting on 49 seats, Samajwadi Party is contesting on 24 seats. While the NCP won 10 seats, the BJP could bag just two seats.

Congress now leading on 20 seats, while BJP on 2. Nineteen wards are represented by four members each, while one ward has five representatives.

In the run up to the polls, Chief Minister Fadnavis had accused the Shiv Sena of lobbying with the Congress to defeat the BJP.

The Congress, with 41 members, controls the outgoing civic body.

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 AIMIM, a Hyderabad-based party, had contested the 2012 Nanded Municipal Corporation and won 13 (11 of its own and 02 partners) seats.
