Will Gopal Shetty be able to maintain BJP's stronghold in Mumbai North constituency?

North Mumbai Lok Sabha constituency is considered to be an important seat for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Given the history, BJP has managed to maintain its stronghold many times on this seat. However, Congress fielded popular Bollywood actress Urmila Matondkar to contest from this constituency against senior BJP leader Gopal Shetty, who is incumbent MP from the same constituency. 

Matondkar was nominated as Congress candidate from Mumbai North LS constituency soon after she joined the party. With her fierce campaigns and presence in the media, the renowned actress became the star candidate for the Congress in Mumbai. With Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) supporting the Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) alliance in Maharashtra, Matondkar was also supported by MNS workers during her rallies. 

On the other hand, Shetty also campaigned strongly in order to maintain his public presence during the election time. In public opinion, Shetty’s campaign for the 2019 national election was more strong than the previous polls. Shetty campaigned while initiating public dialogue in his rallies. 

Almost 60 per cent voter turnout was registered in Mumbai North Lok Sabha constituency. The maximum voting was recorded in Borivali assembly section while the lowest voter turnout was registered in Kandivali East. 

The voter turnout in Mumbai North constituency has been the highest at 60 per cent.
