The MNS has, however, not named any candidate for Worli from where Aaditya Thackeray will be making his electoral debut. Maharashtra will go to polls on October 21 and the results will be declared on October 24. In the last assembly elections, the MNS had contested on 220 seats but won just 1. MNS chief Raj Thackeray decided not to contest Lok Sabha polls held in April-May.
Earlier today, the BJP released the first list of 125 candidates for the state polls. Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis will contest from Nagpur South West. The saffron party has given, in its first list, tickets to 12 women candidates.
The saffron party has also fielded leaders who joined it recently from Congress and NCP. Among the leaders are Harshvardhan Patil from Indapur, Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil from Shirdi, Vaibhav Pichad from Akole, Jaykumar Gore from Man, Madan Bhosale from Wai, Rana Jagjitsinh Patil from Tuljapur, Kalidas Kolambkar from Wadala, Shivendraraje Bhosale from Satara and Sandeep Naik from Airoli.
