CPI-M posts impressive victory in recent Maharashtra Gram Panchayat elections


Mumbai: The Communist Party of India (Marxist) (CPI-M) captured 92 posts of the Sarpanch (Gram Panchayat President) in the recently concluded round of the Gram Panchayat elections in Maharashtra.

The Party has done quite well, especially in its traditional strongholds of Nashik, Thane and Palghar districts. Out of the 1,165 Gram Panchayats in the state went to the polls in this round, the counting of which was held on October 17, this was stated by Dr. Uday Narkar, State Secretary, and CPI-M Maharashtra state committee.

Apart from this, in many Gram Panchayats the CPI-M came very close to winning the Sarpanch post, which was a direct election by the total voters of the village. However, it could muster a majority of the elected Gram Panchayat members in many of such cases. Along with this, it won seats in several other Gram Panchayats.

The Maharashtra State Committee of the CPI (M) has thanked the voters for showing their faith in the party, which had striven hard to solve the people’s problems at the grass roots. The recent peasant struggles in Maharashtra also had a good impact. The Party congratulates all the winning candidates and the Party workers for an impressive show.

In the state as a whole, the opportunist and communal Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-Chief Minister Eknath Shinde led combine was clearly edged out by the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA). These gains must be consolidated in the next round of elections.
