Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had expressed confidence before the elections that Shiv Sena-BJP combine will cross 220 seat mark in Maharashtra assembkly elections. Though the 'Mahayuti'seems to be racing ahead as the votes are counted, it seems far from the 220 mark in 288-member Maharashtra Legislatiove Assembly.

Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) combine seems to be doing better than 2014 Maharashtra Assembly elections. In 2014, Congress and NCP bagged 42 and 41 seats respectively. According to the current trends Congress-NCP has won/leading on 101 seats.

Maharashtra Election Results 2019: 10 Biggest Takeaways

  1. Udayanraje Bhosle, descendent of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj himself, who defected to BJP for Satara bypolls, is in danger of losing. Satara is NCP bastion and party chief Sharad Pawar has made it into prestige battle.
  2. Pawar's last ditch efforts in Satara seem to be bearing fruits. The photo of Sharad Pawar, a man in his eighties, continuing his speech in heavy rains had gone viral just before elections. This helped NCP win social media battle in the last leg.        India Tv - Sharad Pawar during his Satara rally
