With the total of 106 seats the Sena -BJP alliance stood out of all speculations of being thrown out this time in the country’s richest civic body election – BMC.
The NCP – Congress Alliance got 66 seats while 28 seats went to MNS. 27 went others including independent candidates out of the total 227 seats. Joining hands with some independent candidates the Sena-BJP would be back in power of BMC.
While much was anticipated about MNS nothing seemed impressive enough to shake the ruling Sena-BJP alliance out from the throne of BMC.
