BJP decided not to field any mayor candidate and offered Shiv Sena outside support.

He defeated his lone opponent, Congresss' Vithhal Lokare, by bagging 171 votes against his rival's 31 in the 227-member BMC house.

Mumbai: Shiv Sena's Vishwanath Mahadeshwar was on Wednesday elected as the Mayor of Mumbai with the support of the BJP. Mahadeshwar filed his nomination for the post on Tuesday.

Raj Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena's (MNS) seven corporators remained absent from the Corporation Hall.

Mahadeshwar is a three-time corporator from Bandra and was the principal of Raje Sambhaji Junior college.

Mishra and Rahi were first arrested in August and September 2013 from Aheri and Chhattisgarh respectively, according to police. The suspended English professor of Ram Lal Anand College, Delhi University, was arrested in May 2014 from Delhi.

The process was held in the presence of BMC Commissioner Ajoy Mehta, Sena MP and party secretary Anil Desai and Sena MLA Anil Parab. According to a report in The Indian Express, incumbent mayor Snehal Ambekar conducted the election. Responding to a query on how she views the BJP backing the Sena nominee in the mayoral poll against the backdrop of vitriolic exchange between the allies ahead of last month's polls, Gorhe said, "They (BJP) did what they thought was right".

Usually, the tenure of mayor is two and a half years. "BJP corporators" slogans reached its crescendo when Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, along with his wife Rashmi and son Aditya, came to the BMC House to congratulate Mr Mahadeshwar and Ms Worlikar on their election. All 82 BJP corporators raised their hands in support of the Sena nominees.

Earlier efforts by the opposition to unite with a common agenda of defeating the BJP failed to materialise following Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis' announcement four days ago that he was withdrawing his party from the mayoral race.

As the BJP has 82 corporators in the BMC, it will get equal representation in the standing, education, improvement and BEST committees. Thakur slapped a case against him, even as Mahadeshwar challenged the committee's decision.
