BJP declares list of 148 candidates for NMC poll

Nagpur: After days of wrangling, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday (February 3), announced the list of 148 candidates for the upcoming Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) elections to be held on February 21. BJP is fighting the crucial poll in alliance with BREM led by Adv Sulekha Kumbhare and RPI(Athawale).

Today is the last day of filing nominations. The declaration of list of candidates on the last day was ostensibly aimed at warding off revolt by aspiring candidates who were denied tickets.

Prominent candidates include Mayor Pravin Datke, Deputy Mayor Satish Holay, Ruling Party Leader Dayashankar Tiwari, Standing Committee Chairman Bandu Raut, Ex-Mayor Mayatia Iwnate, Ex-Deputy Mayor Sandeep Jadhav, former Chairmen of Standing Committee Sandeep Joshi, Avinash Thakre, Ramesh Singare, Vicky Kukreja, a CM confidant, Pragati Patil who entered the BJP fold a day before, NIT Trustee Bhushan Shingne, ex-NIT Trustee Dr Ravindra Bhoyar.

The party has fielded many new faces denying tickets to 25 percent of sitting Corporators.

BREM has been given two seats and RPI(A) one seat. The NMC election is being conducted for 151 members on Prabhag system.
