ments have only raised taxes and cut funds for wel­fare schemes and sub­si­dies that re­sulted in this anger and de­feat of the BJP,” he said.

Cha­van con­fessed that the party had not ex­pected such a land­slide win. “This man­date is his­toric. Op­po­si­tion does not have enough num­bers to get even the Leader of Op­po­si­tion post in cor­po­ra­tion,” said Cha­van.

Cha­van also pointed out how BJP had ne­glected its own ac­tivists and lead­ers in ticket dis­tri­bu­tion. “CM Fad­navis tried to make this cam­paign a high volt­age one. But they ne­glected their own lo­cal BJPRSS lead­ers. CM gave the BJP’s cam­paign re­spon­si­bil­ity to Shiv Sena MLA Prat­aprao Chika­likar and a re­tired bu­reau­crat and the de­ci­sion back­fired.
