Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’s victory in Maharashtra Assembly Poll 2019 from his home ground Nagpur came out as a roller coaster ride for the Bhartiya Janta Party as the party managed to win only 6 out of 12 seats from Nagpur constituency on October 24. This Assembly election turned out to be an epic fight between Congress and BJP. But the unexpected happened when CM who was confident to win with more than 1 lakh votes had to satisfy with just 50,000 votes.
It was a close fight between many leaders in different constituency while many won with a big margin defeating their opponents and regaining their reign in the area. For many, it was quite a surprise as BJP’s leader Shrawan Teckchand Sawarkar from Kamthi constituency who replaced Chandrashekhar Bawankule and surprisingly won with majority votes of 1,18,182 defeating Indian National Congress candidate Suresh Bhoyar who received 1,07,066 votes.
