The voting, which took place on Wednesday, saw a 60 per cent turnout.

BJP's Jagruti Patil defeated Shiv Sena's Meenakshi Patil in Bhandup.

The 81-member civic body is now controlled by the Congress. The Shiv Sena, that stood a distant second during the last elections, is fighting for relevance.

Nanded is the home-turf of former Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan who led the Congress' election campaign while Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis spearheaded the BJP's poll strategy. NCP is contesting on 57 seats, Shiv Sena is contesting on 76 seats (73+3), AIMIM and BSP are together contesting on 49 seats, Samajwadi Party is contesting on 24 seats. The BJP that has been riding high on poll success is sure to recreate the magic in Nanded while the Congress is keen on protecting its bastion.
