Results in previous elections – Since 2009, the election in the Bhusawal Assembly seat has seen a bitter contest between Sanjay Waman Sawakare and Advocate Rajesh Dhanaji Zalte. So, when Sawakare, who was agriculture minister in the NCP-Congress alliance government switched to the BJP before the 2014 Maharashtra Assembly election, Zalte who was a Shiv Sena leader joined the NCP. Zalte had given Sawakare a tough fight in the 2009 Assembly election (the difference of votes between the two leaders was just over 3,000 votes), however, he lost badly in 2014 with Sawakare taking the victory margin to over 34,000 votes. This was BJP's first-ever victory in the Bhusawal Assembly constituency.
In 2004, NCP had wrested the seat from Shiv Sena when NCP's Satoshbhau Chabildas Chaudhari defeated two-time Shiv Sena MLA Bhole Dilip Atmaram by over 29,000 votes. Atmaram had won the seat as a Shiv Sena candidate in 1995 and 1999. While Atmaram defeated NCP's Chaudhari in 1999 with a margin of nearly 11,000 votes, the Shiv Sena leader had defeated Congress' Devidas Namdeo Bhole by over 23,000 votes.
BJP, who is contesting the Maharashtra Assembly election in alliance with Shiv Sena has already named Sawkare as its candidate for the Bhusawal seat reserved under Scheduled Caste (SC) category.
