Both – Congress and NCP – have forged an alliance in the state to national polls. However, the alliance faced a humiliating defeat by the BJP–Shiv Sena combine. In the state that sends 48 MPs to the Lok Sabha Polls, NCP-Congress could only bag 5 Lok Sabha Seats with NCP winning 4 seats while one seat won by the Indian National Congress.
While NCP even failed to score in Maval Lok Sabha Seat from where Ajit Pawar’s son Parth Pawar was making his electoral debut. Ajit Pawar had made Maval Lok Sabha Seat a prestigious battle for the party.
Bharatiya Janata Party along with its ally Shiv Sena swept the polls in Maharashtra by bagging 41 seats out of the total 48 Lok Sabha Seats on the state.
