BJP Launches Aggressive Campaign for South Mumbai Ahead of Lok Sabha and Assembly Elections

BJP Plans Strategy to Challenge Shiv Sena Thackeray Group

Mumbai | October 02, 2023 – In a bold move ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha and Assembly elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has initiated a vigorous campaign to bolster its presence in Mumbai, particularly focusing on the South Mumbai Lok Sabha constituency. The BJP’s strategic approach is aimed at challenging the influence of the Shiv Sena Thackeray group in the region.

The responsibility for South Mumbai Lok Sabha constituency has been entrusted to Assembly Speaker Rahul Narvekar and Guardian Minister of Mumbai Suburbs, Mangal Prabhat Lodha. This decision was announced during a recent meeting of South Mumbai BJP officials. Currently, Arvind Sawant of the Shiv Sena Thackeray faction represents South Mumbai in the Lok Sabha.

In a bid to expand their footprint, the BJP has set its sights on four assembly constituencies in South Mumbai that are not under their control. The meeting emphasized the need for special attention to be paid to the constituencies of Worli, Shivdi, Byculla, and Mumbadevi.

Presently, Aditya Thackeray represents Worli, Ajay Chaudhary represents Shivdi under the Thackeray group’s banner, Yamini Jadhav is the representative of the Shinde group in Byculla, and Mumbadevi is held by Amin Amir Ali Patel of the Congress party.

Notably, the BJP is placing particular emphasis on the Worli and Shivdi assembly constituencies, where they currently have two MLAs. Their ambitious goal is to secure two additional assembly seats and win 12 corporator positions in the South Mumbai region. Additionally, party office bearers have been instructed to closely monitor and follow up on developmental projects in the area.

As the election season heats up, the BJP’s strategic maneuvers in South Mumbai are poised to bring intense political competition to this significant constituency. The outcome of these elections will undoubtedly have far-reaching implications for the political landscape of Mumbai and Maharashtra as a whole.
