Shiv Sena nominee, Rajan Vichare, also former city mayor, secured a comfortable victory riding the Modi wave. Sena had a seat sharing pact with the BJP. Strong cadre base supporting the saffron alliance and a divided opposition came in handy for Vichare’s victory.
The Shiv Sena will make every attempt to retain the seat. However, it depends on how the Shiv Sena and BJP’s prepoll alliance shapes up. United they stand, divided they may fall.
