The Nanded Waghala Municipal Corporation is currently controlled by the Congress. In 2012, the Congress had won 41 wards. Shiv Sena with 12 seats was a distant second, followed by Asaduddin Owaisi’s All India Majlis-e-Muslimeen (AIMIM) with 11 seats. While the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) won 10 seats, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) could bag just two seats. Out of 81 seats, 41 seats are reserved for women candidates, 15 seats for Scheduled Caste (SC) candidates, 2 for Scheduled Tribes (ST) and 22 seats for Backward Class communities.
The election results of Nanded Waghala Municipal Corporation is viewed as a litmus test for the former Maharashtra Chief Minister and current state Congress unit president Ashok Chavan, whose father late Shankarrao Chavan had nurtured the constituency over years. During the campaigning, Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis attacked Congress as well as Shiv Sena. The BJP said voting for the Shiv Sena would mean bringing the Congress to power as the two parties had joined hands in Aurangabad Municipal Corporation polls.
Asaduddin Owaisi’s AIMIM contested the Nanded Waghala Municipal Corporation election in alliance with Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP). Nanded urban has more than 45 percent population of Dalit-Muslim voters, which may favor the AIMIM-BSP alliance. Besides holding rallies, Owaisi also took out a door-to-door campaign in Nanded.
