Pritam Munde creates new record, won by record 6.96 lakh vote margin

Bhartiya Janta Party nominee for the Beed Lok Sabha by-election Dr Pritam Munde-Khade has created new records by winning the Beed LS seat by a whopping margin of 6.96 lakh votes against her nearest rival Congress nominee and former minister Ashok Patil. In the 2004 LS poll, CPI-M candidate from Arambagh (West Bengal) Anil Basu demolished his rival with the highest ever victory margin of 5,92,502 votes. Also in the recent LS election PM Narendra Modi had won by margin of 5.70 lakh votes from Vadodara. 

Setting a new record in poll history Dr Munde polled 9,22,416 votes against Patil's 2,26,095 votes, leading to the rest of the 10 candidates forfeiting their deposit. Notably, the NCP and Shiv Sena did not field candidates against Dr Munde out of respect for her father and senior leader, the late Gopinath Munde, who died in a road accident on Jun 03 in New Delhi, within a short period after taking over the union cabinet portfolio of rural development.

NCP chief Sharad Pawar had earlier announced that the NCP would not field an opposition candidate from Beed LS seat if ane person from the Munde family contests the bye-election, while Shiv Sena President Uddhav Thackeray also recently said that he is treating Munde's daughters like his own sisters. Meanwhile, in a reversal of the 2009 scenario BJP has won 5 assembly seats in this district out of six, while the NCP has won only 1. Of these Pankaja Munde-Palve, the elder daughter of late Gopinath Munde is set to play a key role in state politics in the coming days.
