Malegaon: The Congress party emerged as the single largest party in the Malegaon Municipal Corporation (MMC) elections, the results of which were announced Monday.

 

The Congress, though short of the absolute majority, won 25 seats in the elections held on Sunday to elect the new body of the 80-member house.

 

Teesra Mahaz, the political group formed before the 2007 elections could win just 19 seats. It had won 28 seats in the 2007 elections emerging as the single largest party then.

 

Janata Dal (S) which is led by veteran socialist leader Nehal Ahmed has surprisingly won just 04 seats as against 11 it had won in the last elections.

 

What has surprised political observers the most is that Shan-e-Hind daughter of Nehal Ahmed, who was proposed as the Mayoral candidate during the poll campaign, contested the elections from two wards but lost from the both.

 

Likewise, Samajwadi Party (SP), which tried to make the Malegaon blast an election issue by fielding the blast accused as party candidates, could win just one seat as against two seats in the last body. The two blast accused also failed to get any electoral support. They not only lost elections but also lost their deposits.

 

The Bhartia Janata Party (BJP) and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) had tried hard to woo the Muslim voters by fielding quite a few number of candidates in Muslim concentrated areas. But, the BJP could not win a single seat whereas the MNS won only two seats.

 

The Shi Sena and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), however, improved their numbers in the civic body. While Shiv Sena increased its tally from 07 to 11, the NCP showed major gains by winning 08 seats. In the last elections, the NCP had won just two seats.
