Mumbai : The municipal election results in the state have given the Congress a major jolt in the politically important cities of Mumbai, Pune and Nagpur.


In Mumbai, the Shiv Sena-BJP combine was heading towards victory in 106 wards, eight short of crossing the magic figure of 114. Congress had won or was leading in 53 seats, NCP in 14 and Raj Thackeray’s Maharashtra Navanirman Sena (MNS) in 7, while others on 21 seats. Counting is still going on in few more and the final tally may change by one or two seats for all the political parties.
