In Maharashtra, the BJP and its ally Shiv Sena are ahead in 202 of 288 assembly seats. The Congress and its ally Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) are ahead in 86 seats. The majority mark is at 145.

This year the voter turnout in Maharashtra slumped a little as compared to that in 2014 Assembly election. The final voter turnout for Maharashtra Assembly election stood at 60.46 per cent, which was 3 per cent down than the figures of 63.13 per cent of 2014.

The Congress-NCP alliance in Maharashtra is facing a direct fight with the Bharatiya Janata Party- Shiv Sena alliance. While almost all the exit polls, including India Today-My Axis India Exit poll, predicted a landslide victory for Bharatiya Janata Party-Shiv Sena alliance in Maharashtra, yet the state looks forward to who their ruler will be for the next five years.

In Maharashtra, while Congress had been struggling to cope with its devastating loss in the Lok Sabha polls, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar and his nephew Ajit Pawar are fighting charges filed by the Enforcement Directorate in a case related to alleged irregularities at a cooperative bank.

The Maharashtra unit of BJP has made “victory” preparations at its headquarters in Mumbai for 5,000 laddoos and erecting a huge screen to see the live coverage of counting. Sources say that BJP workers have been asked to reach the party headquarters located near the state secretariat in south Mumbai after 10 am when the poll trends are expected to emerge.

Aaditya Thackeray is leading after the first round of counting from the Shiv Sena bastion Worli, a seat in southern part of Mumbai. Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has surged ahead in the early morning trends soon after counting began. The chief minister is contesting from the Nagpur South West. NCP strongman Ashok Gawade, who has also sevred as the deputy mayor of Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC), is leading from the Belapur seat of Navi Mumbai. He is pitted against BJP’s Manda Vijay Mhatre, who is also the sitting MLA. In 2014 elections, Mhatre had won this seat against the NCP in a close contest.

An aggregate of 11 exit polls indicated the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance might win 211 seats in Maharashtra. The Congress and Sharad Pawar’s Nationalist Congress Party might manage to win 64 seats, a shade higher than 56 seats they scraped together last time.

In Maharashtra, the BJP contested the polls in alliance with long-term partner Shiv Sena, with which it has had a roller-coaster relationship over the last five years. The two parties had contested the 2014 state election separately and neither won a majority. The BJP later formed government with support from the Sena, which has since been a vocal critic of the BJP-led government’s policies at the state and the centre.
