The Congress not only retained hold over NWCMC but also hugely improved its tally compared to 2012 when it had secured 41 seats, proving a major morale booster for the party reeling under a saffron onslaught.

The counting of votes is underway for the high stakes Nanded Municipal Corporation Election.

The opposition led by BJP bagged six seats while its ruling ally in the Centre and the state, Shiv Sena, got just a single seat. The party could not only attract AIMIM's Muslim voters but also gained Shiv Sena's voters. The Congress had fielded Pramila Singh as its candidate.
