BJP trounces Sena in BMC ward bypoll
On Thursday when it bit dust in the Nanded-Waghala City Municipal Corporation (NWCMC) polls, the ruling BJP heaved a sigh of relief in Mumbai, as its candidate Jagruti Patil trounced the Sena nominee in a ward-poll of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).
With its victory in Thursday's by-poll, the BJP inched closer to the ruling Shiv Sena's strength in the BMC.
With the addition of one more seat, the BJP's seat tally rose to 82 as against the Shiv Sena's strength of 84. Though it is supporting the ruling Sena in the BMC, the
BJP does not hold any position in the elected civic body.
Thursday's election to BMC ward no 116 had been necessitated after the death of Congress corporator Pramila Patil, who passed away on April 25. In the polls, BJP's winning candidate Jagruti Patil polled 11,129 votes as against 6,337 votes secured by the Sena nominee Minakshi Patil.
