The Congress Party has managed to retain its control in the Nanded municipality. The home turf of Maharashtra’s former chief minister Ashok Chavan, the Nanded Waghala municipality recorded 60 per cent voter turn out on Wednesday. The election had at stake Chavan’s prestige in the area. The victory for the Congress party, currently in opposition, comes as a major setback for the BJP.

In its campaign, the BJP left no stone unturned and brought all its A-listers, including Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, to ensure a win. Chavan too did not risk taking anything to chance and had parked himself in Nanded for the last three weeks. Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi also visited Nanded in the build-up to the polls.

Nanded is a Congress stronghold and the party had won 41 out of the 81 seats last time. Shiv Sena had secured 12 seats, followed by All India Majlis-e-Muslimeen with 11 seats. BJP had managed to add just two seats to their kitty. While the ruling party seems confident of a much improved performance this time, it still remains to be seen whether the party can dent the Maharashtra Congress chief president Chavan’s bastion.

The Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) machines have been used for the first time in the state in these elections. The Maharashtra Election Commission had planned to use these machines across 37 polling centres in one ward but the machines had to be withdrawn from a couple of polling centres due to technical glitches, officials informed. The machines could not be installed at four other centres, making 31 polling centres the final count for the use of machine on a pilot basis.

    Even when the BJP is defeated they can turn the defeat into victory by offering money and power and splitting the other parties. We have seen it in Bihar, we have seen it in Goa. This is a party with a difference. No one can do it but BJP can. All over India they can bribe elected representatives to their side, so defeat is not a problem. Even if they win they form govt and even if they are defeated they form govt. So it makes no difference to them.

      This is sample only wait for more defeats waiting for BJP in the coming elections. The people are not fools to believe the mere false promises again and again. The ground reality is that the common people are suffering, their life have become worse. How long they can be cheated and how long they will endure the sufferings. Economy is going down, GDP has come down, unemployment rate is increasing fast, industrial productivity is diminishing, exports have dwindled, corruption are there as it was in all government offices, black money is unchecked, still jewelers, shops, grocers, retailers and whole rs sell their most of their products for cash only, doesn't the government know this? To add salt to the injury, they did the b er of the century, by Demonetization of 500 and 1000 Rupees notes, which made the life miserable for every citizen. The top of the miseries came from the illogical imposition of GST on the essential goods. The poor taxed higher and the rich taxed lower.

          How they managed to form government in Goa and Manipur will not be forgotten. They killed democratic norms and occupied power from the backdoor. They have no moral right to be called a disciplined party. In fact, they are the worst in today's political parties.

          From your name you appear to be Hindu who has unfortunately been roped in by RSS which is a anti Hindu Party. According to Hindu scriptures arrogance is worse than cancer. NAModi ji, RSS and its followers are worst example of arrogance.
