The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) faced unexpected upsets in its own stronghold.

The NCP was shocked following the defeat of former deputy chief minister Vijaysinh Mohite-Patil and the decline in its strength from 23 in 2004 to 18.

While NCP strongman Ajit Pawar won from Baramati, the NCP received a setback when it lost Shirur, Purandar and Daund, which are parts of the Pawar family’s bastion. The Shiv Sena’s Vijay Shivdare upset the NCP by winning the Purandar constituency making it his party’s first major victory in Pawar’s den.

The NCP also received a jolt in Pune where the party could get only five out of the 21 seats. The Congress and saffron alliance won five seats each while five went to independents. Congress’ Praniti Shinde, daughter of Union Power Minister Sushilkumar Shinde, won her maiden election from Solapur Central, defeating veteran Communist leader Narsayya Adam.

Praniti, a law graduate and St Xavier’s alumnus defeated three-time legislator Adam by more than 33,000 votes. “I attribute this success to the efforts taken by the party workers,” said Praniti.

While the Shiv Sena failed to retain its strength in the sugar bowl, the Bharatiya Janata Party gained four seats in Sangli district, which witnessed communal riots during Ganeshotsav in September.

The Congress received shocks in Sangli where it lost three seats to the Bharatiya Janata Party. Congress heavyweight Patangrao Kadam and NCP’s Jayant Patil faced tough fights while former deputy chief minister R R Patil had a relatively easy run.

The Sena won two seats in Kolhapur district. Maharashtra Navnirman Sena’s Ramesh Wanjle won the party its lone seat, Khadakwasla, in Western Maharashtra.
