BMC results out; Sena, BJP kept dangling

Mumbai – The result of much awaited BMC election was out on Thursday. Neither Shiv Sena nor BJP could manage to secure the magic figure of 114 for majority in the house. Though the Mumbaikars elected Sena as the single largest party they have also put the BJP not far behind. Ultimately, it can be said that prudent voters of the mega city have kept these parties in a dangling situation to see who sits on the treasury benches and who sits on the opposition side.
Out of 227 seats in Mumbai, the Sena and the BJP have won 166 seats while remaining others went in the kitty of Congress, NCP, MNS, MIM and Samajwadi Party and independents. Both Sena and BJP will have to take the help of smaller parties and independents to form their governance in the BMC. Sena president Uddhav Thackeray has claimed that the city will have Sena’s mayor while city BJP president Ashish Shelar claimed that his party has grown tremendously and also garnered the support of five independents to make the mayor of his party.
