WITH a 3.15-lakh margin, BJP’s Anil Shirole is set to be the third BJP MP for Pune parliamentary seat after a gap of 15 years.
The Pune seat has seen BJP leaders only twice — in 1991 (Anna Joshi) and in 1999 (Pradeep Rawat).
The Congress-dominated Pune parliamentary seat saw Shirole polling 5.69 lakh votes as against Congress candidate Vishawajeet Kadam, who gained 2.54 lakh of the total 9.86 lakh votes polled for the Pune seat. While Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) came a clear third, polling 93,502 votes followed by Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) Subhash Ware getting 28,657.
With 29 candidates in the fray, the keenly watched Pune seat contest was completely dominated from round one by Shirole, who gained an earl y lead of nearly 11,000 from the nearest contender Vishwajit Kadam from Congress.
This continued through all the rounds and Shirole consistently dominated in all the rounds in all the six assembly constituencies — Vadgaonsheri, Shivajinagar, Kothrud, Parvati, Pune Cantonment and Kasba Peth.
