The sources have also claimed that the results have helped regain the lost prestige for former Maharashtra Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Narayan Rane.

In the election, BJP won just 5 seats while the congress got 21 seats and Shiv Sena and NCP (Nationalist Congress Party) won 20 seats each. The election of six Nagar Panchayats held in Maharashtra on Sunday polling for total 102 seats and the results were declared on Monday.

The results have also helped regain the lost prestige for former Maharashtra Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Narayan Rane, who had lost the 2014 Assembly polls and 2015 Bandra Assembly by-polls, as Congress managed to win the Kudal Nagar panchayats in coastal Konkan, Rane’s home turf.

Kudal Nagar panchayat results are significant as Congress, led by Rane, won nine seats in the 17-seat body by restricting BJP to just one seat. Shiv Sena stood second by winning six seats. Sena and BJP had put their weight around by senior leaders, including Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, in the campaign.
