MUMBAI: CM Devendra Fadnavis, after the voting process of electing Maharashtra's next state government, had said he was confident of a two-thirds majority for the BJP-Shiv Sena alliance. Whereas, the Congress-NCP has claimed that it was all to wrest power from the saffron allies.

The results will be declared on Thursday.

On Tuesday, the Election Commission provided the final figures based on the turnout that took place on Monday. However, the turnout for the state came down from 61.1% to the provisional figure of 60.5% as per the release is given by the EC on Monday evening.

State NCP chief Jayant Patil had said, "Fadnavis failed to tackle the agrarian crisis, rural distress and was unable to halt farmers' suicides. In the recent past, more than 16,000 farmers committed suicide. It's a fact that TV channels have given a clear majority for the saffron combine, but there are no takers for these surveys."

AICC general secretary Avinash Pande had claimed that "Fadnavis has missed the opportunity to provide able leadership, and the people of Maharashtra have not voted in the name of PM Modi or the CM. We will come back to power, that too with a huge majority."
