Mumbai: The Shiv Sena-BJP alliance took early leads in the richest civic body Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and Thane Municipal Corporation as counting of votes for the 10 municipal corporations and 27 Zila Parishads in Maharashtra, began this morning.

 

Mumbai Corporation, the country's richest civic body with a budget of over Rs 20,000 crore, more than that of many states, has 227 seats. The Shiv Sena along with its alliance partner BJP is ruling it since 1996.

 

Elections were held on Thursday in Thane, Pune, Ulhasnagar, Pimpri-Chinchwad, Solapur, Nashik, Akola, Amravati and Nagpur municipal corporations along with the Mumbai civic body.

The BJP-Shiv Sena alliance has taken an early lead in Thane Municipal Corporation also.

While in Pune, a neck and neck battle is seen between the NCP and the BJP, the BJP took early leads in party President Nitin Gadkari's home city Nagpur.

Nashik saw a close battle between the Congress, Shiv Sena and MNS during the early hours of counting.

All eyes are on MNS chief Raj Thackeray, who is expected to emerge as kingmaker.

Counting of votes for 27 Zilla Parishads, 309 Panchayat Samitis and 10 municipal corporations, including Mumbai was underway. The results would be out by the afternoon.

While the municipal corporation polls were held on Thursday, elections to 27 Zila Parishads and 309 Panchayat Samitis were held on February 7.

In Mumbai, 2,232 candidates were in the fray for 227 electoral wards in the city.

While Mumbai had marked a poor turnout of 45 percent in elections,  in all the 10 Maharashtra municipal corporations, where voting took place during the day, the average voter turnout was around 54 percent.

A total of 3.5 crore voters were registered to elect 1,244 councillors, including 624 women, in Mumbai, Thane, Ulhasnagar, Pune, Pimpri-Chinchwad, Solapur, Nashik, Akola, Amravati and Nagpur municipal corporations.
