As the Lok Sabha elections are nearing, the Congress announced its first list of Lok Sabha candidates for seven seats in Maharashtra on Thursday night, granting opportunities to seven individuals out of a total of 57 candidates announced on Thursday.

According to media reports, two names have been prominently discussed within the Congress party for the North Central Mumbai constituency: actor Raj Babbar and actress Swara Bhasker.

Speculation mounts that Swara Bhasker could be the choice for Congress, especially after her recent meeting with Maharashtra Congress in-charge Ramesh Chennithala in Delhi.

Noting the strategic importance of the North Central Mumbai constituency, all eyes are on the impending nomination decision for this key electoral battleground.

Recently, actress Swara Bhasker held discussions with Ramesh Chennithala, Maharashtra Congress in-charge, at the Congress headquarters. The meeting primarily focused on the political landscape of Maharashtra, sparking speculation about Swara's potential candidature in the upcoming elections.

Meanwhile, Adv Goval Padvi, son of former Maharashtra minister and MLA K C Padvi, is set to contest from Nandurbar (ST), where he will face off against two-time Lok Sabha MP BJP's Heena Gavit.

Balwant Wankhede, currently serving as the Congress MLA from Daryapur (SC) constituency, will be contesting from the Amaravti (SC) seat in Vidarbha.
