Maharashtra elections LIVE Updates: Out of the total 288 seats in the Maharashtra Assembly, BJP is contesting on 164 seats while Sena has fielded candidates on 126 seats. On the other hand, the Congress has fielded 147 candidates and ally NCP 121. In 2014 elections, BJP won 122 seats, Sena 63, Congress 42 and the NCP 41.

If the scrapping of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 was the pivot of BJP’s poll campaign, the Congress-NCP camp raised issues of economic slowdown and joblessness. The lacklustre canvassing by the Opposition was evident from the fact that Congress-NCP alliance — the principal opposition formation in the contest — not holding a single joint rally.
