Four-fold fight

There was a four-fold fight between Mahavikas Aghadi candidate Chandrakant Khaire, sitting MP and AIMIM candidate Imtiaz Jaleel, Mahayuti Candidate Sandipan Bhumre and Afsar Khan. All the political parties left no stone unturned to bring out the voters to the polling centres. The activists of all political parties were seen busy engaging the voters to the centres.

The four-time Lok Sabha MP, Khaire had to face defeat in 2019 and AIMIM candidate Imtiaz Jaleel won the election. Khaire has declared that he will be contesting his last election. Hence, Shiv Sena (UBJ), NCP (Sharad Pawar) and Congress used all their might to make Khaire victories.

Similarly, Shiv Sena candidate Sandipan Bhumre had the backing of the Shiv Sena (Shinde), BJP and allied parties.

Earlier, Imtiaz Jaleel was benefitted with the alliance of AIMIM and VBA in 2019. However, in 2024, AIMIM and VBA contested separately. The Dalit, Muslim and women’s votes are said to be divided among the candidates and hence there was a thrill in the contest.

The entire election was conducted peacefully. The city and the rural police had kept a strong police bandobast at the polling stations. Similarly, the district administration made all the facilities available to the voters at the polling booths. In the morning, there was only 7.52 percent voting till 9am but the voting gradually increased after 11am. The maximum voting was held between 11am and 3pm.
