Congress activists erupted in noisy celebrations in Nanded, Mumbai and other parts of Maharashtra. The BJP and the Shiv Sena, partners in the central government and in Maharashtra, contested the civic polls separately, with the bitter campaign highlighting their strained ties since the BJP's rise as the state's number 1 party after national and assembly elections in 2014.Though the two parties had nearly the same number of seats, the BJP said it would not challenge the Sena for the post of Mayor.The BJP's goodwill gesture after the BMC elections was seen also as an acknowledgment of the role the Shiv Sena plays in supporting the Maharashtra government of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.

The Congress was expected to win a few more seats as it led in another five seats in the NWCMC, a stronghold of Maharashtra party chief Ashok Chavan. The constituency is, after all, one that Ashok Chavan's father late Shankarrao Chavan nurtured. Polling for the Bhandup ward no 116 by-election was held on Wednesday.

In 2012, the Congress bagged 41 seats, Shiv Sena 14, AIMIM and NCP 10 each, BJP two while independents and others notched three seats. The AIMIM, which contested the 2012 Nanded Maha Nagar Palika election for the first time, had won 11 seats.

It is a high-stakes battle for the ruling BJP and the Congress in Nanded.
