Congress blazes victory trail in Nanded, BJP trails (2nd Lead)

Mumbai: After a year-long winning spree in local elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Maharashtra on Thursday suffered a severe blow in the elections to the Nanded Municipal Corporation in Marathwada, with the Congress registering a landslide.

Senior Congress leader and Leader of Opposition in TSLC Mohammed Ali Shabbir congratulated former Maharashtra Chief Minister. The BJP already rules the Pune and Nagpur municipal corporations. "This is one tight slap to the BJP politics of splitting other parties and importing leaders from other parties", Chavan said.

Malik claimed that the state government has appointed IPS officer Pravin Padval, son-in-law of BJP leader Shyamsundar Shinde, as a member of Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe allegations against Mopalwar in an attempt to free him of the charges. If we play as a team and each player scores, the party will score. With the bypoll win in Bhandup, the difference between the Sena and BJP at the BMC has come down to just one seat-the Sena has 84 and the BJP 83.

He said the people of Nanded have rejected the BJP-led state and central governments for its anti-people policies. Around 60% of the registered voters cast their votes on Wednesday.

The results also marked Muslim community's rejection of the Owaisi brothers and the All India Majlis-e-Itehadul Muslimeen.

During the last election, the Congress had won 41 seats of the 81 in the corporation. This time it has drawn a blank despite campaigning by the Owaisi bothers.

He said the people of Nanded had "reposed full faith" in the developmental agenda of the Congress and deserved credit for its victory.

The Congress not only retained the civic body but also hugely improved its tally compared to 2012 when it secured 41 seats, proving a major morale-booster for the party reeling under a saffron onslaught. It had put Skill Development Minister Sambhaji Patil-Nilangekar in charge of the polls.

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.

"We may not have won seats, but our voting percentage has increased from 3% to 19%", said Mr Patil-Nilangekar.
