Shiv Sena-NCP gain a big score, a major setback for BJP, ahead of the BMC elections in 2022
Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) elections 2022 seems predictable as Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) got a significant setback after the panel fielded by Union Minister Narayan Rane’s son and former MP Nilesh Rane was defeated by the Shiv Sena-Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) coalition in the Ratnagiri District Central Cooperative Bank Election. 
 
The Nilesh Rane panel acquired only three seats with 18 being acquired by the Sahakar Panel of Shiv Sena-Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) out of the total of 21 seats, and 14 seats were beforehand elected unopposed. This was the hard work that the Higher Technical Education Minister Uday Samant and local Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Tanajirao Chorge had made a poll strategy to win the elections. 
 
The result has come after a high level of drama that was noticed in the state of Maharashtra over the arrest of Union Minister Narayan Rane in August as he made derogatory comments on Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray that he would have slapped the Chief Minister. These elections result show the tie and effective result of a coalition of the Shiv Sena and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) for the approaching Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation elections 2022.
 
With this, some more elections are to be held where the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) partners consisting of Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Congress against its next opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Clashes while the elections were reported between the opposition and the ruling.
