Shiv Sena's Vishwanath Mahadeshwar is the new mayor of Mumbai
Mumbai: The mayoral election in the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) proved a cakewalk for the Shiv Sena as its candidate Vishwanath Mahadeshwar won with a huge margin of 140 votes defeating Congress' Vitthal Lokre. Four independents had extended support to the Shiv Sena, while the ABS had offered to support the BJP, which were yet still far away from the magic figure of 114 for electing their Mayor. Ahead of the municipal elections which the two allies contested separately and acrimoniously, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray had said he was considering ending his party's two-decade long partnership with the BJP in the state and at the centre.
His election was a foregone conclusion with the BJP last week announcing that it would not contest for the post, despite finishing a close second to the Sena in the bitterly fought polls, which even cast a shadow on the stability of the Devendra Fadnavis ministry. Independent corporator Mumtaz Rahabar Khan from Bandra, who had earlier made a decision to support the BJP, also stayed away from the proceedings.
Out of the 227 corporators, 218 participated in the voting process. The Sena has 84 while the BJP has 82 members. He has been a member of the education committee in one of his earlier terms. The BJP, in an apparently friendly gesture towards the Sena, voted for Mahadeshwar in an election which was conducted through a show of hands.
Mahadeshwar, 56, a former principal of Raje Sambhaji Vidyalaya and Junior College in Mumbai, was elected from the Bandra ward in the recent civic elections. However, the Konkan Divisional Caste Scrutiny Committee said it was unable to establish that he was actually from the said caste, and that the oldest documents that had probative value at best showed that Mahadeshwar was from the Wani caste, which is not included in the list notified by the government as OBC. But Mahadeshwar is facing legal trouble after a case has been filed in the court challenging his election.
