Congress wins

New Delhi: The Congress has won 73 of the 81 seats in the civic polls in Nanded, the home turf of state party chief Ashok Chavan, as per the final results declared early today.

Denting the BJP's bid to wrest power, the Congress was successful in limiting the saffron party's tally to six in the elections to the Nanded-Waghala Municipal Corporation.

The results of four seats were kept pending on Thursday due to technical reasons and were declared today, an official of the State Election Commission said.

Chavan on Thursday attributed the party's win to non-tampering of the electronic voting machines and claimed that the BJP's "return journey" has started.

As per the final tally of the total 81 seats, the Congress won 73, followed by the BJP which bagged six seats. The Shiv Sena just about managed to open its account with one seat. An independent candidate also won a seat.
