Nanded is Maharashtra Congress president Ashok Chavan's home turf and it saw an aggressive campaign, with BJP making all efforts to wrest control of the civic body. If the Sena withdraws support to the BJP, the Fadnavis government will be in a minorit and will need help from Sharad Pawar's Nationalist Congress Party or NCP.The BJP dramatically improved its performance in this year's BMC election from the 31 wards that it had won last time. The All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul muslimeen (AIMIM) and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) are also expected to play a crucial role. Elections to the civic body were held on Wednesday. For Bhandup by-poll, Shiv Sena fielded Minakshi Patil, wife of Bhandup MLA Ashok Patil, while the BJP nominated Jagruti Patil, who is a daughter-in-law of deceased Pramila Patil as its candidate.

Congress that is now ruling the civic body is seeking to retain it while the BJP, that has been thumping all other parties in most local body polls is seeking to seize power in Nanded.

Devendra Fadnavis has led the BJP's high pitched battle for the civic body election. The AIMIM, which contested the 2012 Nanded Maha Nagar Palika election for the first time, had won 11 seats.
