BJP's performance in Maharashtra was very poor in the Lok Sabha elections. Devendra Fadnavis has accepted the responsibility for the defeat of BJP and alliance in Maharashtra. He has offered the party to resign from the post of Deputy CM. BJP and its allies have won only 17 seats in the Lok Sabha elections in Maharashtra.

While opposition Maha Vikas Aghadi of Congress, Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) and NCP (Sharad Pawar) have made a grand appearance by winning 30 out of 48 seats. Compared to Lok Sabha Election 2019, the number of BJP MPs in Maharashtra has reduced to less than half.

NDA got only 17 seats

The BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) had set a target of winning more than 45 seats in Maharashtra. But as a result BJP was taken by surprise. He got only 17 seats. The BJP won nine seats in Maharashtra, far less than the 23 seats it won in the state in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Its ally Shiv Sena has won seven seats. Another ally Ajit Pawar-led Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) got one seat.

Congress won 13 seats

Ajit Pawar's wife Sunetra Pawar lost to Sharad Pawar's daughter Supriya Sule in Baramati. The Congress won 13 seats in Maharashtra, significantly more than the one seat won by the party in Maharashtra in 2019, while the Shiv Sena (UBT) won nine and the NCP (Sharad Pawar) eight.

Vishal Patil, who is in the Congress, contested as an independent and won the Sangli seat. In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections in Maharashtra, the BJP won 23 seats, while its then ally Shiv Sena (Undivided) won 18 seats. The then undivided NCP won four seats, while the Congress managed to win only one seat.

The BJP-led NDA was aiming to win more than 45 seats in Maharashtra this time. Shiv Sena (UBT) president Uddhav Thackeray said the 'India' alliance will hold a meeting on Wednesday to decide the face of the prime ministership. Thackeray said that the common man has shown his strength. He said that the opposition needs to claim to form the government at the centre.

We will compensate for the losses in the assembly elections - Fadnavis

Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said that the reason for the NDA's display in the state is the opposition's propaganda that the BJP will change the constitution after the elections. Fadnavis wrote on the social media platform.
