Kolhapur, Pune By-election Results: BJP Takes Early Lead, Shiv Sena Lags Behind

Counting of votes for the by-election results of Tarabai Park ward of Kolhapur Municipal Corporation (KMC) and Koregaon Park of Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) is underway. The by-election to Tarabai Park of KMC ward recorded 57.66 per cent voting on Wednesday. The ward No 21 (Koregaon Park and Ghorpadi) of PMC on Wednesday recorded merely 20.78 per cent of voting amid a very poor response by local voters.

In Koregaon Park ward of PMC, a by-election was necessitated after former deputy mayor Navnath Kamble, who had won from this ward, passed away in May this year. The Tarabai Park seat of KMC fell vacant after corporator Nilesh Desai was disqualified earlier this year for submitting a fake caste certificate.
