The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party-Shiv Sena combine marched to a spectacular victory in Maharashtra, leading in or bagging (as of 6 p.m.) 41 of the state's 48 Lok Sabha seats.

Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis termed the success by saying: "Its not just a 'Modi-wave', it's a tsunami."

As per latest trends, the BJP was on way to winning 22 seats and the Shiv Sena 20 seats, of the 25 and 23 seats they contested respectively, which Fadnavis termed as well within their expectations and which "increased the responsibility thrust by the people on the saffron alliance".

The electoral bloodbath in Maharashtra claimed at least two Union Ministers - one from the BJP and one from Sena - falling to the Congress and NCP candidates respectively.

    Huge jolt to Congress: Former CM Ashok Chavan loses in Naded, say reports

    In what can be a big setback for Congress in Maharashtra, reports have emerged that former CM Ashok Chavan has lost in Nanded parliamentary constituency. Election Commission of India is yet to make an official announcement. Chavan was trailing by at least 35,000 votes at the time of last confirmation.
