Two candidates each of ruling allies NCP, Shiv Sena, one from Congress and five from BJP have won Maharashtra Legislative Council polls, Officials informed.

The counting, originally scheduled to start at 5 pm, was delayed by over two hours after the Congress raised an objection to the votes cast by BJP MLAs Mukta Tilak and Laxman Jagtap.

However, the Election Commission of India (ECI) rejected the Congress objection and gave a go ahead to counting of votes.

In all, 11 candidates were in the fray - five of the BJP and two each of the Maha Vikas Aghadi allies, the Shiv Sena, the NCP and the Congress.

NCP - Eknath Khadse

NCP - Ramraje Nimbalakar
