Watch: How Mumbai voted to elect India's largest civic body

Mumbai witnessed municipal elections on 21 February, with over 90 lakh voters eligible to exercise their right to vote. The results of the polls were declared on 23 February. The election results did not give a decisive mandate to any of the parties with the ruling Shiv Sena winning 84 seats. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which rules Maharashtra, came a close second, winning 82 seats. The Congress came a distant third with 31 seats. The dynamics of this year's election was different from that of the last 20 years, as none of the parties were in an alliance this time. However, keeping the political calculations aside, the festival of democracy saw many previous records being broken. To know more, watch the video.
