Maha civic polls: Several leaders face defeat in own bastions

Of the 126 municipal and district panchayat seats in 16 districts to which by-elections were held, the BJP has won 109, wresting 40 seats from the Congress. "These results across India illustrate that people want all-round progress of the nation and will not tolerate corruption and misgovernance", Modi tweeted. The party had a clean sweep in elections held in two municipalities and one taluka panchayat.

"Be it North East, West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat. the BJP has performed very well". This proves people are in favour of development and corruption-free governance, " said chief minister Vijay Rupani. The election to two seats were cancelled due to legal issues, while a BJP candidate was declared uncontested.

Counting of votes began at 10 AM Monday morning in the election to 147 municipal councils and 17 nagar panchayats across 25 districts in Maharashtra. "It is clear that people did not like the Opposition's protest against the government's action against black money and supported the (demonetisation) decision". A political observer, however, refrained from attributing the win to a thumbs up for demonetisation, and would wait for its impact on the assembly elections. In Kanakpur Kansad Surat, BJP won 27 out of 28 seats spread in seven wards.
