State BJP President Sudhir Mungantiwar rubbished claims by rival political parties about the party not doing well during elections to 195 municipal councils in the state in December 2011.

Speaking to newspersons, he said that contrary to the perception that the party did not do well in the council polls, the party, which had won 322 seats in 2006 elections, bagged 436 seats in December 2011 elections. In alliance with the Aghadis (fronts), the party had bagged 206 seats. Mungantiwar stated that the BJP in alliance with Shiv Sena-RPI-A had contested less seats, but its success rate has been more than the rest of the political parties.

The Sena, which had won 381 seats in 2006, has now bagged 335 seats in 2011 polls. The Congress, which had bagged 1,021 seats in 2006 elections, has now bagged 1,142 seats. The NCP, which had won 965 seats in the 2006 elections, has now won 1,200 seats. The independents, who had won 1,058 seats in 2006 seats, managed to win just 205 seats this time.
