Shiv Sena's Vishwanath Mahadeshwar has been elected as the next Mayor of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) today.
After BJP withdrew their nomination, Mahadeshwar was competing with Congress' Vitthal Lokare for the Mayor's post. All 82 BJP corporators raised their hands in support of the Sena nominees. The Nationalist Congress Party (9), SP (6) and one Independent remained neutral, whereas the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (7) and one All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) member abstained from the voting. Political pundits say that BJP's support is an olive branch to its ally, as it depends on Shiv Sena for creating majority in the Maharashtra Legislature.
With more than 70 per cent corporators belonging to Sena-BJP, the BMC House wore a saffron look as both party corporators were clad with phetas and shelas of that colour.
Out of the 227 corporators, 218 participated in the voting process.
The announcement comes days after the Shiv Sena won by a margin of 2 against the BJP's 82 in the recently concluded BMC elections.

Pakistan Rangers raised objection over the installation of the flag and regarding this, they have conveyed their message to BSF. With this, the title of the tallest national flag in India changed from the 293-foot-high tricolour in Ranchi in Jharkhand.
After winning the election, Mahadeshwar said he will conduct a coordination committee meeting between the state government and the BMC soon after taking over, reported The Indian Express.
His election was a foregone conclusion with the BJP last week announcing that it would not contest for the post, despite finishing a close second to the Sena in the bitterly fought polls, which even cast a shadow on the stability of the Devendra Fadnavis ministry.
Fadnavis said BJP will not contest elections for the post of deputy mayor of BMC and for the standing, improvement, education committees as well as for posts of chairpersons in the BEST committee.
Mahadeshwar, 56, a former principal of Raje Sambhaji Vidyalaya and Junior College in Mumbai, was elected from the Bandra ward in the recent civic elections. But Mahadeshwar is facing legal trouble after a case has been filed in the court challenging his election.
