The first phase counting of results for Kalyan Dombivli Municipal Corporation 2010 (KDMC 2010), elections which were conducted yesterday are on. The poll turn out was around 46%. The poll saw high octane campaigning by the parties. The Maharashtra Navnirman Sena led by Raj Thakre put up an impressive campaigning. It is expected to eat into BJP-Shiv Sena alliance votes. Shiv Sena and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena had put up a slanging match in which Maharashtra Navnirman Sena even dragged Bal Thakre.
As of now, out of 107 seats, current results show:
Congress : 14
Shiv Sena : 31
MNS : 26
BJP : 9
NCP : 14
Independent’s : 11
The municipality results are hung. Even though, people have not given the entire Municipality to Raj Thakre as he demanded in Dombivli speech, but, MNS has as expected become a major force in Kalyan Dombivli Area.
