While the results will be out only when they will be out but we did speak to political analysts on their take about the outcome of the bi-elections in ward 2 & 7 at Airoli. The Sena is having an advantage in both wards. Political analysts say that Sena’s Vijay Chougule is likely to win the poll from ward 7 Chinchpada with a thumping majority. In the other ward no. 2, a 3 cornered contest between the Sena candidate & former corporator Kishor Gaikar, the NCP candidate Gopal Mahale and Congress candidate Brijesh Mishra. However the division of votes between the Congress & NCP & Vijay Chougule’s performance report, as corporator in the ward tilts the scale in favour of Sena’s Kishore Gaikar. Thus the battle is between NCP power & Vijay Chougule’s performance in the city. Vijay Chougule’s confidence of the outcome is noteworthy, as he has personally not campaigned much. He has personally campaigned for Kishor Gaikar to some extent. As they say all is fair in love & war, the NCP campaign might get the support of the official machinery. This too, so that voters dare to revolt and faith is induced in voters to vote fearlessly. Unless that happens, it is advantage Sena in both wards going for by elections. A NMTV Bureau Report.
