Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) managed to open its account in the assembly elections in the state. Raj Thackeray-led MNS won on one seat across Maharashtra. The results for the assembly polls were declared on October 24. 

MNS candidate Pramod Patil won from Kalyan rural assembly constituency and defeated Shiv Sena candidate Ramesh Mhatre by a margin of nearly 5,000 votes. 

Congress and NCP alliance in the area also promoted and campaigned for Pramod Patil. Amid the vote counting, Patil from the inception was leading and maintained the same. MNS had fielded more than 100 candidates for the assembly elections. 

Raj Thackeray, in one of his addresses during the election campaign, had asked the voters to elect all his candidates and make MNS a strong opposition in Maharashtra. However, the people elected only one candidate from MNS.
